The latest PCPSR poll came out in mid-April. In most way it is similar to their previous poll from three months earlier, but some Palestinian attitudes that are quite important to understand are still barely mentioned in Western media. 

71% of Palestinians still believe that Hamas was correct to launch the war in October, a consistent finding both in Gaza and the West Bank.

In Gaza, 70% of those in shelters run by UNRWA say that the organizers distribute aid unfairly based on political considerations. 

Only 7% of Palestinians say Hamas is responsible for the suffering in Gaza. 

The ability of Palestinians to delude themselves is apparently unlimited. While 78% agreed in December that murdering civilians in their homes is a war crime, only 5% think Hamas committed those war crimes. Most have not seen the videos of the atrocities on October 7, but even among the people who did see the videos, only 17% believe that Hamas committed the murders that they themselves saw on the videos. That's down from 31% in December.  

When Gazans were asked how they expect Egypt to react if masses of people break through the barrier to Egypt, 68% expect Egyptian soldiers to shoot them dead.

When asked who should control Gaza after the war, 59% say Hamas should remain in charge. And 49% say that Hamas should be the ruler over all Palestinians. 

70% of all Palestinians are satisfied with how Hamas is waging this war. 83% are satisfied with the Houthis intercepting ships and shooting missiles at Israel.

Twice as many Palestinians would vote for Hamas compared to Fatah if elections would be held today, 30% to 14%.

The answer to this next question shows that the scenario that the West insists must be the solution for Palestinian leadership  is one that Palestinians would never accept:
Finally, we asked the public about if it is for or against an idea of a long-term vision for the day after in which the US and an Arab coalition comprising Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Jordan would develop a plan that would strengthen the PA, restore negotiations based on the two-state solution, and bring about an Arab-Israeli peace and normalization. Almost three quarters (73%) said it stands against the idea 
Similarly, this question showed a side of Palestinians that close observers know to be true but that Western media refuses to report:

We asked the public about its willingness to compromise for the sake of peace: “if during negotiations, Israel agrees to make painful concessions to the Palestinian side, would you be willing in this case to support a similar Palestinian position in offering similar concessions to Israel?” A majority of 63% (70% in the West Bank and 52% in the Gaza Strip) said “no,” while only one third (33%; 46% in the Gaza Strip and 24% in the West Bank) said “yes.”
The Palestinian attitude for years has been that they want the world to give the a state on a silver platter without any compromising for peace, and even without a peace agreement.  As the UN General Assembly vote last week showed, they are being rewarded for their intransigence.
