Survey: Only one in four Gazans supports Hamas
By Haaretz Service
Only a quarter of the Palestinians in Gaza support Hamas, Army Radio reported Monday.
According to the findings of a new poll conducted in Gaza, support in the ruling Hamas government has drastically gone down following the Israel Defense Forces offensive in the coastal strip.
Only 28% of the Palestinians now say they support Hamas, compared to 51% who voiced their support for Hamas in November 2008.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' moderate Fatah party has seen a rise in favorability rate, with 42% of the Palestinians in Gaza now supporting Fatah, compared to 31% in November.
Despite the findings of the poll, more than half of those questioned said they hold Israel responsible for the recent escalation in Gaza
