The poll was conducted by Dialog on the first full day of the Israel-Hamas ceasefire in Gaza and shows the Israeli prime minister has an approval rating of 77 per cent.
In 28 days of fighting 1,814 Palestinians have died, a figure which includes 408 children. According to UN estimates 85 per cent of all Palestinian casualties are civilians. Sixty-six Israelis have died, all but two of them soldiers, and a Thai national.
