From a party winning over 50% of the votes in previous elections all polls show Hamas will be down to about 30% and be crushed in both parliamentary and presidential elections if those are to take place in the upcomming year as was announced. The people of West Bank sees what goes on in Gaza and know very well that is their future if Hamas wins the elections and the People of Gaza look at the economic improvement in the West Bank and know that Fatah winning control over Gaza would end the siege and greatly improve their lives. Polls show Palestinians think that if Hamas would win this would further isolate the West Bank and harm donations which the Palestinian economy is dependent upon. The facts are clear the blockade worked economic sanctions would in the comming year bring a change in government and the end to Hamas control over Gaza!
