NEW ON ROSNER’S DOMAIN: Tracking Benjamin Netanyahu’s approval rating.

We will be following the fortunes of the prime minister, based on a range of surveys of the Israel population, and with numbers crunched by veteran pollster Camil Fuchs. 

In the polls conducted during the last two months of 2011, following the release of Gilad Shalit, Netanyahu’s approval rates remained consistently positive for the first time in more than 18 months.

The prime minister took credit for the relative strength of the Israeli economy, especially as compared to the situation in Europe. Furthermore, he kept Iran’s nuclear armament as a main issue in the public discourse, and managed to convince the Israeli population that he can be trusted to deal with this matter better than any rivals. At the same time, a series of non-democratic laws, which are acceptable to the general public, have added to Netanyahu’s popularity.
