Who is the leader in the Senate?
I assume you mean the US Senate. The constitution specifies that the Vice President (currently Joe Biden) is the President of the Senate. However, the Vice President plays little role in the Senate these days. Most of the power is shared between the Senate Party leaders, currently Harry Reid (Majority Leader) and Mitch McConnell (Minority Leader).
What is the title held by the leader of the party with the most seats in the US Senate?
Senate Majority Leader. He is technically outranked by the President Pro Tempore of the Senate, who is traditionally the most senior member of the majority party in the Senate (and is third in the line of succession after the Vice President and the Speaker of the House). However, the Senate Majority Leader wields much more actual power.
