New Poll Shows Israel's Netanyahu Losing Ground

Tuesday, 25 December 2012 01:29 AM EST

JERUSALEM — A new poll shows Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu poised for an election victory but losing support to a rival who opposes Palestinian statehood.

The Dialog poll gave 35 of parliament's 120 seats to Netanyahu's Likud Beiteinu list, indicating he'll head the next government after the Jan. 22 vote. That's down from 39 in the previous Dialog survey.

The centrist Labor Party polled second, with 17 seats.

The poll shows a continued surge by the Jewish Home Party. Its leader, Naftali Bennett, stirred up a storm last week by saying he'd resist evacuating settlements if ordered to do so as a reserves soldier.

Bennett's party received 13 seats in the poll published Tuesday, up from 11.

The poll of 491 people had an error margin of 4.3 percentage points.
