New poll following passing of Reasonableness Bill suggests Gantz's National Unity would become largest party

A new poll published by Channel 13 on Tuesday shows Benny Gantz's National Unity party would emerge as the largest party, with some 30 seats if elections were held today.

The coalition government currently holds a 64-seat majority in the 120-seat Knesset, or parliament.

The opposition, however, has reportedly been gaining strength at the expense of the coalition parties.

By contrast, Netanyahu’s Likud party’s mandate would shrink to 25 seats. Overall, the coalition’s current 64-seat majority would shrink to 52 seats. In contrast, the current opposition would rise to a 63-seat majority.

Four months ago, ALL ISRAEL NEWS' Founder and Editor-in-Chief Joel Rosenberg published an analysis: "Keep your eye on Benny Gantz," which included a poll showing Gantz receiving more support than Netanyahu when asked who should be Israel's top leader.

While Israel is not expected to hold elections anytime soon, polls are conducted from time to time and are used by politicians to gauge trends in public sentiment.
