A poll published by Yedioth Ahronoth on Friday, 53 days before the elections for the 19th Knesset, shows that Likud is gaining strength after its primary elections indicated that it was shifting to the right.

 

According to the Mina Tzemach/Dahaf poll, the ruling party would win 37 Knesset seats if elections were held today, four more than what a different survey conducted in the beginning of the month indicated. Labor, on the other hand, lost five Knesset seats and is set to win 19 in the upcoming elections, according to the poll.
