It’s an extremely tight race, but Ha’aretz reports: Â ”Exit polls by Israel’s three main television stations on Tuesday night showed Kadima as the leader in the 2009 general elections, with Likud coming a narrow second.
“Channel 1, Channel 2 and Channel 10 polling of voters as they left the ballot box all pointed to victory for Kadima, headed by Tzipi Livni.
“Despite the poll results, it is not certain that Livni will be able to muster the 61-seat coalition needed to form a government. The elections were called when she failed to achieve this goal following the resignation of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert late last year. ”
