According to Israeli news site Ynet, the polls, which included 500 respondents from a sample representing the adult Jewish community of Israel, determined in July 2014 that 71 percent of Israelis believed the country was winning the ongoing campaign.

By the beginning of August that figure dropped sharply to 51%; today it stands at 46%.

On the other hand, the percentage of those who believed Hamas was winning the battle rose from 4% in August to 20% six months after the war was over.

When asked “What, in your opinion, is the right solution in the long-term for the Israel-Palestinian conflict,” 54% of the web users and 49% of those polled on the phone answered “Two states for two peoples.”
