Benny Gantz against the government: "Reality shattered in your face, the people proved to you that their vote does not end at the ballot box" (Knesset channel)
Against the background of the ongoing talks at the president's residence about the legal revolution, and about a week after Netanyahu's government succeeded in approving the state budget for 2024-2023 in the Knesset, it appears that there is no dramatic change in the political balance of power. According to a poll published Tuesday evening by Channel 12 News, if the Knesset elections were held today, the political outcome would remain essentially unchanged, with the coalition parties winning only 53 seats, while the opposition parties would win 63 seats.
Benny Gantz's State Camp is the largest party in the poll with 28 seats, leaving Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud in second place, winning 26 seats.

Yesh Atid, led by opposition leader Yair Lapid, continues to lose seats and is in third place with only 18 seats. This is according to a survey conducted by the Midgam Consulting and Research Institute headed by Mano Geva in collaboration with iPanel.
The other parties: Religious Zionism and Otzma Yehudit (running together) - 10 seats, Shas - 7 seats, Yehadut HaTorah - 7 seats, Yisrael Beiteinu - 6 seats, Ra'am - 6 seats, Meretz - 5 seats, Hadash-Ta'al - 4 seats, Balad and the Labor Party do not pass the electoral threshold.
As for the bloc map, the current coalition wins 53 seats, 11 fewer than it received in the last elections, while the opposition jumps to 63 and Hadash-Ta'al retains its four seats.
