Exit polls: Kadima wins, Likud finished

Early results from exit polls are indicating Ehud Olmert's Kadima Party will score a dissappointing 29 seats in the next Knesset, but that will still be more than enough to give them a majority and the right to form the next Knesset coalition.

Labor, the polls claim, will finish a strong second with 22 seats under the socialist leadership of Amir Peretz, and likely will become the key partners with Kadima in the next government.

The biggest story is the total destruction of the Likud Party and the corrupt Benyamin Netanyu. The poll reveals only 11 seats for Likud, the lowest number in Party history, and good for only a 4th place finish behind the Russian immigrant Yisroel Beitenu Party (Israel our Home) of Avigdor Lieberman's shocking 14 seats.

By midnight tonight, Netanyahu will likely be forced to resign from the Likud after this crushing defeat.

Keep in mind, however, these are very early polls and are not all that trustworthy, so stay tuned for more accurate updates throughout the evening.

Hi! May I ask a stupid question? How can 29 be a majority in 29+22+11+14=76. Is not 29 less than one half of 76? ;-)
