The biggest news in the poll is Kadima and Labor would end up with nearly equal strength. But the Likud would wouldn't really increase its seat strength, its just that Kadima would decline relative to Labor. My guess is Tzipi Livni has a lot to do with it and Israelis appear to like Shelly Yacamovich - the only other woman to lead a party in Israel - more than they like her. Kadima may be looking for a new leader soon.
