A research center operating out of Ramallah on Sunday published the findings of a survey which asked Palestinians their expectations on the upcoming UN statehood bid, Ma'an news agency reported.

According to the report, 87 percent of Palestinians expect backlash from the United States and 90% from Israel after PA President Mahmoud Abbas brings Palestinian statehood to a vote at the United Nations.
