58 percent of public don't believe Olmert, poll says
Most Israelis believe state comptroller's version in clash with prime minister over interim report on handling of Home Front during Lebanon war, Ynet survey reveals

Ynet Published: 03.07.07, 21:10 / Israel News,7340,L-3373818,00.html

Most Israelis believe State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss rather than Prime Minister Ehud Olmert in their clash over the interim report on handling of Home Front during the war in Lebanon, a poll conducted for Ynet
by the Smith Institute revealed.

Lindenstrauss alleged at the beginning of the week that although he had sent his questions regarding to the report to the prime minister about two months ago, Olmert had yet to send his replies to all 12 questions.

Officials at the Prime Minister's Office slammed the comptroller in response, saying that "a new record has been broken here, with the comptroller misleading the MKs who appointed him in order to reach his goal."

According to the survey, 58 percent of the public believe the comptroller's version over the prime minister's. Only 9 percent believe that Olmert's version is more reliable than Lindenstrauss'. Twelve percent of respondents said they did not believe either one of them.

Asked whether Israel's situation had changed for the better or for the worse since the Olmert government was elected about a year ago, 68 percent said that the situation had become worse. Only 6 percent believed that the situation had improved, while 24 percent said that the situation had not changed.

As for the prime minister's political future, the poll revealed that 64 percent of the public believe Olmert should resign and call new elections. Twenty-nine percent of the public believe the prime minister should be allowed to complete his term.

The poll was conducted among 400 people, constituting a representative sample of the Israeli population, with a sampling error of 5 percent.
