Abstract: We show that the zeros of consecutive orthogonal polynomials $ p_n$ and $ p_{n-1}$ are linearly connected by a doubly stochastic matrix for which the entries are explicitly computed in terms of Christoffel numbers. We give similar results for the zeros of $ p_n$ and the associated polynomial $ p_{n-1}^{(1)}$ and for the zeros of the polynomial obtained by deleting the $ k$th row and column $ (1 \leq k \leq n)$ in the corresponding Jacobi matrix.
