First post-Winograd poll

In the first post-Winograd poll, conducted by Channel 2, Israelis showed that they are not so stupid or naive. 56% think Prime Minister Ehud K. Olmert should resign while 27% believe he should stay in his job.

45% believe Defense Minister Ehud Barak should leave the government and take his Labor party with him, while 41% believe he should stay in.

Israel is a country in which the elites pay no attention to public opinion polls. Ehud Olmert may have a five percent approval rating but he's not going anywhere without considerable public pressure - regardless of what a majority of Israelis want.

I think Olmert should go. He is looking increasingly weak and out of control.

I'm impressed by the Winograd Report. Not so much for the contents of the report but for the fact that Israel shows what a great democracy it is by having an official investigation in the first place. Something her neighbours could learn a lot from.

Only a rapist blames the victim; only a bad worker blames his tools. Olmert and Winograd.
