These numbers are scary. The combined opposition parties don't have enough seats to even form a coalition. If the results are true then PPP has got it.

Somehow the Bangkok Post report that this poll was out since last night seems to indicate it was not an "exit" poll.

Four parties talk about forming coalition

The Democrat, Chart Thai, Puea Paendin, Ruam Jai Thai Chart Pattana have already talked about forming the next coalition, a source said.

But they will wait for election results before announcing their plan to form the coalition together.

The Nation

If the exit poll results are correct then this is no longer an option for them.

The exit pollis pretty much what I expected. Remians to be seen if it more acurate than with the charter vote where they overestinmated yes by 13 % or something. This time I fel they may be more accurate

No problem. The junta appointed judiciary has a contingency plan. The EC has been preparing cases to disqualify various PPP candidates if they win.

And of course, tanks and guns beat votes anyway. The Democrats are going to win no matter how many elections it takes.

ABAC has PPP on 202 and Dems on 146. It really seems to be about how well or badly Puea Pandin will actually do in the Isaan as to where PPP end up

well there will be a lot red cards for PPP MPs, if not PPP desolved again. Even if it might be right to punish them for their wrongdoings, it does not look good to win an election in the court against the majorities of the voters.

Exit polls: Thaksin allies win in Thai

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Exit polls showed that allies of deposed Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra have won Sunday's post-coup general election, an outcome likely to deepen Thailand's two-year political crisis.

The polls from Thailand's two leading polling agencies, however, differed on whether the pro-Thaksin People's Power Party had won an absolute majority in the 480-seat lower house of parliament.

A Dusit poll for Bangkok's Suan Dusit Rajabhat University forecast that PPP had won a majority of 256 seats, compared to 162 for the rival Democrat Party.

An Abac poll for Assumption University showed that PPP had won 202 seats, falling short of an outright majority, with the Democrats taking 146 seats.

The Dusit poll surveyed 341,000 voters nationwide before polling stations closed at 3 p.m. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 5 percentage points. Abac's sampling error was not immediately released.

Thaksin was ousted in a bloodless coup in September 2006 but remains popular among the rural majority. PPP campaigned on a platform of bringing Thaksin back from exile in London.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

BANGKOK, Thailand -- An exit poll showed that allies of deposed Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra have won Sunday's post-coup general election with an outright majority, an outcome likely to deepen Thailand's two-year political crisis.

The People's Power Party, comprised of Thaksin's loyalists, won 256 seats in the 480-seat lower house of parliament, according to a Dusit poll conducted for Bangkok's Suan Dusit Rajabhat University.

The anti-Thaksin Democrat Party won 162 seats, said the poll, which surveyed 341,000 voters nationwide before polling stations closed at 3 p.m. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 5 percentage points.

The problems begin.

Overthrow again will bring sanctions from the western nations.

No overthrow will mean revenge time and fighting.

Thailand did well to avoid fighting the last time but this time?

Hope all stayes peaceful.

If you like to bet on the baht, one might look for it to weaken if there is trouble.

I am old so I always look for peace and compromise.

Perhaps the two main parties will form a coalition government.
