Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has succeeded in maintaining the political boost he received for defending Israel in his clash with US president Barack Obama, a poll broadcast by Channel 10 Thursday night found. The Daialog poll found that 50 percent of Israelis were satisfied with Netanyahu's performance as prime minister, compared to just 38 percent who said so two months ago at the height of a scandal over Netanyahu's overseas travels.

Asked who was more fit to be prime minister, 49 percent said Netanyahu and just 31% said Kadima head Tzipi Livni. When compared with Labor candidate Amram Mitzna, Netanyahu had the support of 59% and Mitzna just 20%.
