Two polls painted very different pictures of Tuesday's Kadima race on Friday, with one giving party leader Tzipi Livni an advantage, and another putting MK Shaul Mofaz in the lead.

A Dahaf Institute poll ordered by Yediot Aharonot boosted Livni, showing that should she win another term as Kadima's leader, the party will get 15 seats in the next Knesset, making it the second-largest party.

If Mofaz wins, Kadima will get 12 seats, putting it behind television personality turned politician Yair Lapid's yet-unnamed party, with 14 seats, Israel Beiteinu, with 14 seats, and Labor, with 13 seats.

According to the Dahaf poll, Likud will win 29 seats and Labor will have 13, regardless of Kadima's leadership. If Mofaz wins the vote, he would take one seat from Shas, while Yair Lapid, Israel Beiteinu and Meretz would gain seats.
