Poll: Peres would bring in most votes for Kadima

A recent poll, released Thursday evening on Channel 10 news, claimed that Vice Premier Shimon Peres would be the best choice to lead the Kadima Party if Prime Minister Ariel Sharon was unfit to continue in his role. The survey revealed that Kadima, with Peres at its head, would earn 42 mandates if the elections were held Thursday. In contrast, Kadima front-runners acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Justice Minister Tzippi Livni would earn 40 and 38 mandates respectively.
