There’s nothing like the smell of exit polls in the morning. Billionaire Bidzina Ivanishvili and the opposition party have upset incumbent Mikheil Saakashvili in parliamentary elections. The Georgian Dream coalition had a 10 percent lead in early vote counts and had probably won more than half of the popular vote, ending a nine-year run by the United National Movement. Ivanishvili ran on a platform that focused on poverty issues, the strong ruling style of Saakashvili, and a softer stance on Russian relations.
