A new poll finds 71 percent of New Yorkers want the developers of an Islamic center and mosque near ground zero to voluntarily move the project.

The Quinnipiac University poll finds the same amount of New Yorkers want Attorney General Andrew Cuomo to investigate funding of the project.

Cuomo, a Democrat running for governor, has said little about the issue. He says the building is protected by the Constitution and will investigate if concerns are found.

The poll finds 53 percent of registered voters feel the Muslim developers shouldn't be allowed to build a couple of blocks from ground zero. About the same percentage of voters say they have a right to.

Quinnipiac questioned 1,497 registered voters Aug. 23-29 and has a margin of error or plus or minus 2.5 percentage points.
