Poll fever continues ahead of March 17 elections, and while results have shown Likud and Labor neck and neck, the latest survey by Channel 10 gives Labor a full four mandate gap over Likud.
According to the poll, conducted by the Dialog Institute under the supervision of Prof. Camil Fuchs, Labor - which erased the word "Zionism" from its Arabic ad campaign - would get 24 mandates, while Likud would only receive 20.
Coming in at third Jewish Home stays at 16 seats, followed by a joint Arab list that would receive 12 mandates. Such a joint list - formed between the three parties Hadash, Balad and United Arab List - has yet to be finalized.
Yesh Atid and Kulanu, both of which have focused on economic issues, would each get ten mandates.
The hareidi United Torah Judaism party would get seven mandates, while Shas headed by recently returned Aryeh Deri would get six, as would the radical leftist Meretz.
Avgidor Liberman's Yisrael Beytenu has been nosediving in recent polls amid an ongoing corruption scandal focusing on senior party members, but the latest poll shows the party at its lowest yet, receiving a paltry five seats.
That new low comes the same Thursday that Liberman officially announced his party campaign, saying his goal is 16 mandates. It also comes as Agricultural Minister Yair Shamir quit the party by not submitting candidacy for the party list, becoming the fifth MK to abandon ship in the last two months.

Obama/Soros agents making headway, eh?
(The danger has existed all along that the Jewish Suicide Syndrome contingent may someday succeed in dragging everybody else down with them...)
Since Netanyahu has increasingly governed center-left, maybe the voters are just going straight to Labor instead of having to pass through Netanyahu. And yes, for all his posturing, Bibi seems to drift toward dancing to Obama’s tune.
Just my guess without talking to any Israelis lately.
Do you think Jewish Home will only get 16 seats? Also, I thought United Torah Judaism was going to join with Likud...I don’t know what to think about this poll.
UTJ and Shas would both be partners with Netanyahu
