Poll shows Israelis don't want elections, but don't want Olmert either

As usual, poll results are a bit contradictory. Most Israelis are dissatisfied with Ehud Olmert as PM. If new elections are held, they would put the Likud party in power, empowering the Israeli right. However, most Israelis do not want to hold new elections, but rather to replace Ehud Olmert as Prime Minister. The probable alternatives to Olmert within the Kadima party are Tzippy Livni and Shimon Peres, both of whom would be more dovish than Olmert!

remain unchanged?
