The more people learn about the Ground Zero mosque, the less they like it

The Ground Zero mosque: What's not to love?

We have a friend who’s a real estate developer. He always “runs the numbers” to see if a project makes sense. We’re pretty sure he’s never had to factor in any poll numbers.

Rasmussen reports the negative news for the Ground Zero mosque:

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 85% of U.S. voters say they are now following news stories about the mosque planned near Ground Zero. That’s a 34-point jump from a month ago when only 51% said they were following the story.

The new finding includes 58% who are following the story very closely, up from 22% in mid-July.

Now 62% oppose the building of a mosque near where the World Trade Center stood in Lower Manhattan, compared to 54% in the previous survey. Twenty-five percent (25%) favor allowing the mosque to go ahead, and 13% more are not sure.

Sixty-eight percent (68%) of the Political Class, however, favor building the mosque near Ground Zero. Seventy-seven percent (77%) of Mainstream voters are opposed.

Just one more issue on which the people differ from the political class. Just one more reason November is going to be fun.

its very unfair to ask where the money is coming from, is it really so inconceivable that a person working as a waiter 1 1/2 years ago puts together almost 10 million dollars for the land and development? New Yorkers are known for good tips!
this whole thing is such a load, if you are against it you are labeled whatever the media definition of the day is! there are over 30 mosque in New York city, this isn’t about religious freedom (although I believe Islam more a cult, which is my right) this is about placing a monument over a site of victory!

a friend of mine just started his own business, making landmines that look like prayer rugs.

So far he’s doing really well.

He says Prophets are going through the roof.

I just wish the mosque would be built a little further away from Ground Zero. Like Saudi Arabia.
