A vast majority of Israeli Jews—87.5 percent—believe the current Israeli-Palestinian Authority conflict negotiations will not lead to a peace agreement, according to a new Israel Hayom poll that coincided with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s latest visit to the region.

The poll, conducted by New Wave Research, found that only 6 percent of Israeli Jews think the negotiations will lead to a deal. The respondents were a random pool of 500 Jewish Hebrew-speaking Israelis over the age of 18.

“We have always known that this is a difficult, complicated road, and we understand that,” Kerry said after meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday. “I believe we are making some progress, and the parties remain committed to this task.”
