December 2014 poll: Two thirds of Palestinians support bypassing Oslo accords by pursuing a draft resolution in the UNSC

"The Peace Process:
Only 33 percent of respondents believe that Palestinians are now closer to achieving an independent Palestinian state than 20 years ago, when the Oslo Accords were signed. 58 percent believe that Palestinians are now farther from achieving their goal.
Two thirds of Palestinians are supportive of pursuing a draft resolution in the UN Security Council to develop a timeline for ending the occupation. In contrast, 22 percent are against such an initiative."

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”.
