Less than 10 days before the Knesset election -- the amount of swing votes is the equivalent of 21 Knesset seats.

 

A survey carried out by the Dahaf Institute published on Friday, which sampled 1,000 Israeli adults, revealed that 18% of the respondents have yet to decide who to vote for.

Their votes – which are equivalent to 21 mandates – could decide the make-up of the next government.

 

An analysis of the swing votes shows that 24% - the equivalent of five Knesset seats - are leaning towards the Left-Center parties.

 

Conversely, 19% of the undecided are inclined towards the right-wing parties – the Likud-Beiteinu or Habayit Hayehudi. This could provide the rightist bloc with an additional four mandates. The remaining 57%, which could account for 13 Knesset mandates, were unable to state their inclination.

 

According to the survey, the majority of Kadima's 28 mandates from the 2009 Knesset elections will be divided between the Labor and Yesh Atid parties.

 

Tzipi Livni's Hatnua will also receive a sizable portion of Kadima mandates. Some 5% of the Kadima votes are slated to go to the rightist parties.
