A Channel 10 poll on Monday showed former prime minister Ehud Barak winning the Labor Party runoff race with 46 percent of the vote to Labor MK Ami Ayalon's 39%. Seven percent of those polled were undecided, and eight percent refused to answer. The poll also showed Barak and Ayalon reversing their position among kibbutz voters. A previous poll gave Ayalon 45% and Barak 41% among kibbutznikim, but Monday's numbers showed Barak pulling ahead to gain 50% of the kibbutz vote and Ayalon dropping to 34%. When asked which of the two frontrunners could oust Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, 37% responded that Barak was the right candidate, while 30% picked Ayalon.
