A majority of Palestinians want their president to negotiate a peace deal with Israel, but don't believe there will be progress at next week's Annapolis conference, a poll showed. There has been a slight drop in skepticism about the conference in the past two months, according to the survey by the independent polling company Near East Consulting. In November, 57 percent of 1,200 respondents said they don't believe the conference will lead to progress in Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking, compared to 61 percent in September, according to the poll, which had an error margin of 3 percentage points. Seventy-one percent said they want Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to attend the conference, down five percentage points from an October poll.
