Poll: Likud would gain if elections held today

A Maagar Mochot poll shows that if Knesset elections were held today, the Likud would gain five seats - three at Kadima's expense and two at Labor's expense. The poll also documents overwhelming Israeli support for stopping the flotilla of fools, but only middling support for Prime Minister Netanyahu.
If elections held today (expressed in Knesset seats) -
Current Knesset seats in [brackets].
25 [28] Kadima
32 [27] Likud
11 [13] Labor
11 [11] Shas
14 [15] Yisrael Beiteinu
06 [05] Yahadut Hatorah
03 [03] Meretz
03 [03] Jewish Home
04 [04] Nat'l Union
11 [11] Arab parties

Was the Israeli operation to stop the flotilla justified?
Yes 72% No 19% Don't know 9%

Should Israel oppose an international investigatory committee under the
auspices of the UN?
Yes 58% No 27% Don't know 15%

How do you rate the performance of the prime minister in the crisis?
Very good 22% Middle 32% Bad 45%
It would be curious to have a breakdown of Netanyahu's numbers based on which parties they support for the Knesset. I suspect the disappointment is more on the Right than on the Left.

The Right forms 49% of the electorate, the Center 35% and the Left 14%. I suspect much of the disenchantment with Netanyahu comes from the Right where many perceive him to be pursuing the policies of the Left in office. That is why his own support is weak to mediocre. I think the Likud would do far better if he wasn't at the party's helm.
