Video: Biden meets with Netanyahu: "We will discuss the difficult issues - such as preserving democratic values"
Even after the summit meeting between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Joe Biden, there does not appear to be any special shifts in the mandate column. The findings of a survey conducted for Maariv newspaper by Lazar Studies, headed by Dr. Menachem Lazar in cooperation with Panel4All, indicate that the coalition remains at 53 seats against 67 for the opposition parties – including the Arab parties.
Most of the respondents (53%) oppose holding protests against Prime Minister Netanyahu on US soil during his visit there, while 36% support it and 11% have no opinion. Divided into political camps according to voting in the 2022 elections, an overwhelming majority of 85% of coalition voters oppose it (7% in favor and 8% without opinion), compared to 72% of those who voted for opposition parties who support it. At the same time, a significant percentage of 19% of opposition voters oppose these protests.

The Yesh Atid party headed by Yair Lapid also retains its power with 16 seats, while Shas headed by Aryeh Deri climbs by one mandate and rises to 10.
