Sharon's popularity DOWN

Arutz Sheva: Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's popularity is rapidly descending, according to a poll published in Yediot Acharonot newspaper today. The survey, conducted by pollster Mina Tzemach, indicates that 56% of the Israeli public feels that Sharon is not trustworthy, and that 46% of the populace thinks he should resign. Just over half say he need not resign. Asked who their preferred replacement would be in the event that Sharon steps down, more respondents chose Binyamin Netanyahu than any of the other candidates - Ministers Olmert, Shalom, and Mofaz.
