Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has succeeded in maintaining the political boost he received for defending Israel in his recent clash with US President Barack Obama, a poll broadcast by Channel 10 on Thursday night found.

The Dialog poll found that 50 percent of Israelis were satisfied with Netanyahu’s performance as prime minister, compared to just 38% 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% said Netanyahu and 31% said Kadima head Tzipi Livni.
