A joint ticket unifying Yair Lapid's Yesh Atid and Moshe Kahlon's Kulanu parties would be the largest Knesset list if elections were held this week, according to the latest Haaretz-Dialog poll conducted on Tuesday.

However, the difference would be negligible from running apart. While separately Yesh Atid would win 12 seats and Kulanu would win 11 seats, a combined list, which is not expected to happen, would receive enough votes for 24 seats, according to the poll.

The poll, conducted Wednesday and supervised by Prof. Camil Fuchs of Tel Aviv University, projects that Likud and the joint Labor-Hatunah list would win 21 seats each.

It was reported Tuesday that Lapid met with Kahlon and suggested running together. Yesh Atid and Kulanu official both declined to comment on the meeting.

Lapid, whose party is projected to lose 50 percent of its strength, has been working hard in recent weeks to advance cooperation with Kahlon as well as Yisrael Beiteinu chairman Avigdor Lieberman, but both made it clear they were not interested in joining forces with him.
