JERUSALEM, Israel - Results of a Panorama poll released on Thursday showed that the Kadima party, led by former foreign minister Tzipi Livni, would lose four mandates if elections were held today.
The Likud party fared well in the poll, gaining four additional seats.
Two-thirds of respondents were happy with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, 60 percent were positive about Defense Minister Ehud Barak (Labor party chairman) and 50 percent endorsed Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman (head of Yisrael Beiteinu).
If elections were held today, Labor would lose one seat (down to 12 mandates), Kadima would win 24 seats (down four), Yisrael Beiteinu would finish with 13 mandates (down two) and Likud would receive 32 seats (up four).
According to poll results, 25 percent of Kadima members are not impressed with Livni's record as leader of the opposition, and less than half of the respondents expressed support for her.
