WARSAW, Poland  — Exit polls in Poland's presidential election show Bronislaw Komorowski with a slight edge over the late president's identical twin brother, Jaroslaw Kaczynski.

An exit poll released Sunday by the TNS OBOP institute predicted Komorowski winning 53.1 percent of the vote, and Kaczynski winning 46.9 percent.

A separate poll, by Millward Brown SMG/KRC, shows Komorowski with 51.1 percent and Kaczynski with 48.9 percent.

Exit polls have a small margin of error, and official results are not expected until Monday.

Komorowski addressed a jubilant crowd of party members in Warsaw. He didn't formally claim victory, noting that the votes were still being counted, but expressed optimism that he will be the next president.
