Nearly one third of Palestinians would emigrate to areas outside of the PA territories if they could, according to a poll conducted in the Gaza Strip, Israel Radio reported on Monday. Over half of those surveyed said that Hamas's decision to join the PA unity government was a forfeiture of a significant part of the group's election platform. In addition, the poll showed that more than two thirds of Palestinians believe Hamas has failed at running the government, and less than a quarter of Palestinians would vote for the party again if elections were held now. The survey was published the An-Najah University in Nablus.
