Israeli election poll

With Likud fading quicker than Jerusalem's sundown, what will be the permanent imprint of Kadima if it were to remain a major political party? :

Haaretz conducted a poll on Tuesday, revealing that the Kadima party, formed by Sharon will harvest 37 seats at the Knesset, while the Likud party would get less that 10, the Labor party remained holding still at 26 seats.
The results were published by Haaretz on Thursday at night...

The Shinui party might drop down to only five Knesset seats, especially since most of its voters are moving to Kadima. Shas party also slips to 10 seats, this losing one to Labor.
Yisrael Beiteinu party, headed by Avigdor Lieberman, is expected to achieve six mandates, Meretz 4 since it is expected to lose two seats to Labor, United Torah Judaism will garner six mandates, National Religious Party and National Union will attain nine seats, and the Arab parties will hold steady at eight mandates in the coming Knesset.

Should Kadima win the most seats at the March 28 election, and remain to fight many more elections in the future(which I doubt), the political impact will be enormous. Primarily, it will be the end of the two-party system in Israel. Most of Labour would join Kadima, and there will eventually be 1 party with 61 members. It will be a democratically elected dictatorship. I am happy with this outcome. I think it’s about time Israeli’s voted for the policies they wanted, rather than voting against the people they dislike.

That's to say if there will be a United Torah Judaism. All indicators point to the two parties not merging. Litzman and Gafni are incapable of getting along.
