A new poll from Geocartography shows that if elections were held today, the Knesset's leading Likud party would win 34 seats - four more than it currently has.

The poll, done for Hebrew-language newspaper Maariv, showed the left-center Yesh Atid as the second-largest party, with 14 seats.

The Jewish Home party and left-wing Labor would tie for third place, gaining 13 seats each. Though this would signify a significant rise for Jewish Home, it would be a significant drop for Labor.

According to the poll, Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon's Kulanu party would receive 10 seats, while Ashkenazic-haredi party UTJ received nine. Sephardic-haredi party Shas would receive four seats only, barely passing the threshold.

Left-wing Meretz would jump from its current five seats to seven, and Yisrael Beytenu would rise from 5 seats to six.
