Israelis, by a 50 to 37 percent margin, believe their country eventually will have to negotiate with the Palestine Liberation Organization, according to a poll published here Thursday.

The 1,000 respondents, representing a sampling of the urban Jewish population, were polled at the beginning of December 1989 by Dr. Avraham Diskin of the Hebrew University’s political science department.

Asked if they believed that ultimately Israel will have to negotiate with the PLO, 15 percent said “definitely yes,” 35 percent said “yes” and 12 percent said “perhaps.”

Among those who thought otherwise, 22 percent answered “no” and 15 percent “definitely no.”
