New poll puts Kadima and Likud neck and neck

A new poll published Friday puts Kadima and Likud neck and neck. The poll, conducted by Ma'ariv and coming hot on the heels of the Kadima primary, predicted that the parties of Tzipi Livni and Binyamin Netanyahu would each win 30 seats. It also showed that Labor and Yisrael Beiteinu would get 12 mandates, Shas would win nine and Meretz - running with the new Hatnua Hahadasha - would win seven.
