The poll found that 74% of the respondents believe that the chances of this occurring range from moderate to high.
In answering the question, “In your opinion, what are the chances of holding a fourth election?”, 40% answered that it is “high” and 34% “medium”, and only 16% said that the opportunities are low while the rest answered that they disagree.
The poll showed that the party “blue and white” will maintain its position as the largest party with 34 seats, followed by Likud with 32 seats.
And the poll showed that the right-wing bloc will get 57 seats, while the center bloc will get 42 seats, and its seats will rise to 56 with the support of the Arab Joint List.

Last month, as the Knesset Arrangements Committee voted on a bill that set March 2 as the date for Israel’s third election within a year, Joint List MK Ahmad Tibi suggested that lawmakers write into the legislation the date for a fourth election, which could already be calculated to fall on August 11.
