Polls show Netanyahu's Likud extending lead

Wednesday, November 26, 2008 |  Israel Today Staff  

The latest pre-election poll in Israel has Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud Party extending its lead over the currently ruling Kadima Party.

Broadcast on Israel's Channel One News on Tuesday night, the results of the poll predicted Likud winning 37 Knesset seats to just 25 for Kadima in the February 10 general election.

Ehud Barak's Labor Party fell to just 7 seats in the latest poll.

The poll showed Likud and other right-of-center parties winning a commanding bloc of 68 seats in the next Knesset, more than enough for Netanyahu to form a stable majority coalition.
