Corroborating other surveys showing that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu failed to score a big polling bounce following his controversial March 3 congressional address on Iran, a new poll released Tuesday finds the prime minister in grave danger of losing his bid for a fourth term ahead of national elections in one week.

The poll, from the Knesset Channel, puts the center-left Zionist Union ahead of Netanyahu’s Likud party, with the Zionist Union on track to win 24 seats in the 120-seat parliament to Likud’s 21. The centrist Yesh Atid party is projected to win 14 seats.

    His trip to talk to the US Congress got him NOTHING and got the GOPer’s to write a letter that got THEM in trouble…..

    • Yep.. I was skeptical about the political wisdom of the speech beforehand, and now I’m 80% sure it’s a hot-head thing, being too personal vs. Obama…
