Nearly 34 percent of respondents favored a binational state in all of historic Palestine over the two state solution, which only 43.9 percent supported.  

The decline in support for the two-state solution has persisted since shortly after the start of the Palestinian uprising in September 2000, however, those who favored a binational state were only 20.6 percent in June 2009.

In 2001, 18.3 percent of respondents favored a binational state, according to JMCC polls.

PEACE PROCESS DEAD?

Just over 30 percent of respondents believe that the peace process is dead and there is no chance that negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians will be resumed.

An additional 46.2 percent believe the peace process is passing through a difficult time and are uncertain of the outcome. Only 18.4 percent of Palestinians believe the peace process is alive and well.

Still, there is a rise in optimism, with 68 percent of Palestinians saying they are optimistic towards the future over 63 percent in October last year.

COMING ELECTIONS

Over half of Palestinians will participate in local council elections planned for June, respondents told pollsters.
Support for Fateh candidates stands at 60 percent in the vote, whether or not Hamas participates in the elections.

Support for Fateh candidates is slightly higher in the Gaza Strip than in the West Bank.

The poll released on Wednesday covered support for the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank and the Hamas-led government in Gaza, as well as gauging trust in Palestinian politicians. It has a margin of error of three percentage points.
