Heís no good, he hates the chareidim and heís not dependable, he left the last coalition.
I still think Bibi should try to take away some MKs from Gantz, has there been any talk of that? Iím sure it shouldnít be too hard to find 5-6 guys that would rather be in the government than in the opposition, and anyways from What I hear, thereís a lot of infighting in Ganzís party. Everyone there wants to be in charge

Round 2 coming up.

I can't figure out why they don't just do it as a two round system in the first place.

Round one needs to get 1/120th of electorate to get into round 2. Round 2 to be held two weeks later needs 1/12th (or other high threshold) to get in. That way all agreements get done before round 2, people know better what they are voting for, and the circus and demands get reduced).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Not a bad idea, but very hard to get the vote out twice.

The polls are predicting a similar outcome, where the right wing bloc has 59+ Liberman, so we may only be at the beginning of this circus.

Sorry, not familiar with the details of the Israeli system. In the Sep. redo is it the exact same parties? If not, could Bennet and Shaked go back with the National religious party because their splinter cost that block 4 seats because they failed to meet the minimum.  Just those extra Dati Leumi votes could make a new majority.

It's an open election, anybody can run. The problem with that is Shaked is not religious, and those parties have religious agendas. Shaked will likely join either the Likud or Liberman where she can have a more significant career.

Shaked will probably join likud. Not sure about Bennet.

If feiglin voters dump him and you have Bennet and feiglin voters voting right parties.. that and Arab party not making cut could swing right wing block to 70+ seats

So Lieberman would not be a factor.

IMHO itís a futile exercise to try to predict anything at this point before we even know whoís in the race (as in party mergers and shifts).

Very true but it seems like Feiglin is looking to join with another party based on posts he put out today. Bennett has to realize he is a nothing without Shaked and he should be like Eli Yishai giving his votes to another party.

Do you really think anyone (except for possibly Lieberman) would take him.

I think Lieberman might take some votes away from Blue and White, as he's singing a similar tune to Lapid.

I also think that overall Blue and White might set a record as the fastest and most spectacular crash of Israeli politics.

I think Feiglin will join with Bayit Yehudi and Bennett will join with Lieberman.
