Summary: This study is the third in a series of public opinion polling projects produced by JMCC.
Previous studies include Palestinian Public Opinion since the Peace Process (July 1998)
and Palestine's Interim Agreement with Democracy (May 1998). Each study uses the
proper methodology to poll Palestinian sentiment regarding political leadership,
democratic institutions, and the peace process with Israel. In conducting these polls,
JMCC hopes to offer a thoughtful compilation of data and analysis in order to uncover
the social, political and economic reasons behind Palestinian opinion.

This study is an overview of the majority of Palestinians, those who support the peace
process, and how their support is linked to certain key variables. Using SPSS and the
data obtained over the last five years, we have examined the impact of socio-econornic,
religious and political backgrounds on support of the peace process. The first section of
the study gauges support by area, (Gaza, West Bank and East Jerusalem), residence
(villages, refugee camps, cities), age, gender, occupation and marital status.

The final section of the study contrasts support for Palestinian political between the
general population and peace process supporters, paying particular attention to Yasser
Arafat's popularity, as well as Palestinian's support for Fatah in relation to other political
parties. In presenting a look at political affiliation within Palestinian society, the study
illustrates how political loyalties effect support for the peace process. 19 charts included
