Maybe Netanyahu should just call new elections or something

A new poll suggests that Prime Minister Netanyahu could do a lot worse than calling new elections right now. The poll shows the Likud at more than double the strength of the next biggest party.
Likud would win 31 seats, followed by Labor and Yisrael Beytenu with 15 each, Kadima with 13, former journalist Yair Lapid’s new Atid Party with 11, Shas eight, United Torah Judaism six, National Union four, and Habayit Hayehudi and Meretz three each. The three Arab parties together would win 11 mandates.

Altogether, the Right-Center bloc would win 67 seats and the Left-Center bloc 53. The split in the current Knesset is 65-55.

Eighteen percent of respondents consider themselves undecided, 30% of whom voted for Kadima in the last election.

Only a quarter of Kadima voters in 2009 intend to vote for the party in the next election. Some 25% support Lapid’s party, 14% Labor, and 25% are undecided.
And no seats for Ehud Barak's Independence party. Hmmmm.
