Netanyahu Advancing, Olmert Collapsing

The Economist reports that Binyamin Netanyahu's Likud Party has advanced significantly in the poll, to the equivalent of 32 Knesset seats (they recieved 12 in the latest election) while the grossly incompetent Ehud Olmert's Kadima party and his main partner, Labour, have nearly collapsed, getting a support equivalent to just nine seats each (compared to 29 and 18 seats in the latest election). Given Olmert's incompetent handling of both the Lebanon war and the economy, the collapse in polls is certainly well deserved. To bad the next election won't be held soon, so that Olmert can be replaced by Netanyahu quicker.
