Many supporters of a two-state solution have switched from leftist parties to Gideon Sa’ar’s New Hope and Avigdor Lieberman’s Yisrael Beiteinu, thereby giving the right a massive majority in the next Knesset, a new poll shows.

According to most recent polls, rightist parties will have around 80 seats in the next Knesset, significantly more than they had in the recent Knessets. Center-left parties are polling at a combined 30 seats on average, down from 45 in the current Knesset and 47 in the previous one.
