More than two thirds of Palestinians feel Hamas has failed at running the government, according to a poll conducted in the Gaza Strip, Israel Radio reported on Monday. Over half of those surveyed felt that Hamas gave up a significant part of the group's election platform by joining the new unity government with Fatah. In addition, less than a quarter of those surveyed said they would vote for the party again if elections were held now. The poll also showed that nearly one third of Palestinians would emigrate to areas outside of the PA territories if they could. The survey was published by the An-Najah University in Nablus.
