The Hamas is closing in on the ruling Fatah Party ahead of January 25 parliamentary elections in the West Bank and Gaza, according to a poll released Wednesday. Fatah won 35 percent support, compared to 31 percent for Hamas, said Nader Said, who conducted the poll for the West Bank's Bir Zeit University. In a Bir Zeit poll last month, Fatah won 36.7 percent, compared to 20.6 percent for Hamas. Said said the latest poll would be released in greater detail on Saturday. He said it had an error margin of 3 percentage points and was conducted last week among 1,500 respondents.
