A new poll finds that 64 percent of Israelis believe President Obama will not prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons. Only 22 percent "trust" that the U.S. president will be able "to ensure that Iran does not achieve a nuclear weapon."

"Just one in five Israeli voters believes that President Barack Obama will prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, according to a new survey conducted for The Times of Israel," the Israeli news outlet reports.

"Asked if they agreed with the statement, “I trust US President Barack Obama to ensure that Iran does not achieve a nuclear weapon,” just 22 percent of likely Israeli voters said yes.

"Fully 64% in the survey, conducted by pollster Stephan Miller of (202) Strategies, said they did not agree with the statement, and 15% said they did not know or refused to answer."
