December 2014 poll: 26% of Palestinians believe Abbas is leader most qualified to achieve an independent Palestinian state

"Leader qualified to achieve an independent Palestinian state:

Abbas: 26%
Mashal (residing outside of Palestine),
Barghouthi (in Israeli prison)
and Haniyeh all place second with about 12% each."

Note: “The following are the results and analysis of the latest Arab World for Research & Development (AWRAD) national public opinion poll... The questionnaire was fielded December 30, 2014 to January 1, 2015. This period closely followed the UN Security Council’s rejection of the Palestinian bid to establish a timeline ending the occupation. It also coincided with the continued delayed payment of PA wages to civil servants and two field visits by the Unity Government to the Gaza Strip, four months after the cessation of the conflict in the territory”.
