"It ain't over till the fat lady sings" is probably one of my favorite expressions, and it fits the Israeli elections to a T. This is a country where we listen to the news on an hourly basis, because things change so quickly. On city buses where the radio is on, the crowd hushes at the start of the hour to hear if something new has occurred.
This year's elections are also very unusual in that there is both a tremendous number of undecided voters, and a huge number of voters who don't plan to vote at all. This means that despite the Kadima party's pronouncements to the contrary, it is far from being over.
An article in Haaretz spells out a scenario where the right can win big on Tuesday. I suspect that this has been published in the left leaning Haaretz in order to scare their readers out of suspected apathy, but I also sense that many are afraid of egg on their faces for being so smug until now.
IDF radio had their usual weekly poll results by Geocartigraphia (notorious for the mistakes that they have made in the past) and they show Kadima down to 34 seats, Labor up to 20, and the Likud up to 18. Avigdor Lieberman's party Yisrael Beitenu is up to 13, and is now thought to be the potential big winner in the elections (which Sophia Ron Moria predicted in the Makor Rishon newspaper months ago).
It is still open, folks, so that those of you who are contemplating staying home on Tuesday - don't. VOTE! Don't turn your back on the opportunity that is right in front of you.
