December 2014 poll: Barghouthi would win in elections against Haniyeh

"If elections were held today between Barghouthi and Haniyeh:
Barghouti 43% (51% Gaza, 39% West Bank)
Haniyeh 27% (29% Gaza, 25% West Bank)

If elections were held today between Abbas and Haniyeh:
Abbas 38% (44% Gaza, 34% West Bank)
Haniyeh 29% (31% Gaza, 29% West Bank)"

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”.
