According to a new national survey released by Pew Research, around twice as many Americans say Hamas is responsible for the current violence as Israel.

Follow up:

All in all, 40 percent of people polled said that most responsibility lies with Hamas as opposed to 19 percent with Israel. The question resulted in division amongst Democrats - 29 percent of them said that Hamas is most responsible for the situation, 26 percent said Israel while a further 18 percent said both. A majority of Republicans, 60 percent, said that Hamas are responsible for the conflict. Just 13 percent said Israel while 10 percent said both.

This chart shows answers to the question "who is most responsible for the current violence in Gaza/Israel?"
