We have one poll this weekend, done by the free daily paper “Israel Hayom”.
86 days before the election, we are beginning to see the Likud, with all it’s new celebrities, gaining some momentum. The right-orthodox block now has 61 MKs, just enough to give Netanyahu the edge in the coalition building game after the election. Labor continues to lose ground, while Meretz is getting a bit stronger.
Here are the numbers (The margin of error is 4 percent):

Likud 33 MKs (+21 from the present Knesset)
Kadima 28 (-1)
Labor 11 (-8)
Shas 10 (-2)
Arab Parties (*) 10 (-)
Israel Beitenu 7 (-4)
Meretz 7 (+2)
Ihud Leumi 6 (-3)
Yahadut Hatorah 5 (-1)
The Green Party 3 (+3)
Gil (senior citizens) 0 (-7)

Right-Orthodox block (Likud + Shas + Israel Beitenu + Ihud Leumi + Yahadut Hatorah): 61 MKs
Center-Left block: (Kadima + Labor + Arab Parties + Meretz + Green Party): 59 MKs

* Most pollsters put the 3 major Arab parties (Hadash, Balad and Raam) into one category
