    WARSAW, July 12 (Reuters) - Poland's incumbent president Andrzej Duda was slightly ahead in Sunday's presidential election, a late poll showed, a narrow victory which if confirmed would allow the ruling nationalists to deepen their conservative reforms.

    The late poll combines exit poll data with partial official results.

    Duda, an ally of the ruling nationalists Law and Justice (PiS), received 50.8% of the vote, according to the late poll.
