Poll: New Yorkers Conflicted on Mosque

Friday, 03 Sep 2010 06:11 PM

A new poll finds New Yorkers are conflicted about the construction of a mosque near the World Trade Center site.

The New York Times survey released Friday shows 50 percent of respondents opposed to the project, 35 percent in favor and 15 percent undecided.

Meanwhile, 62 percent said people have the right to build an Islamic center and mosque near ground zero, while 28 percent said they don't.

The project is planned for a site two blocks from ground zero.

Opponents have said it is too close to the place where Islamic extremists killed more than 2,700 people in 2001. Supporters say it is a matter of religious freedom and argue the center could bridge interfaith understanding.

The Times polled 892 adult New Yorkers from Aug. 27 through Tuesday. The poll had a plus or minus three percentage point margin of error.
