Only 20% of voters approve of the mosque proposed to be built near Ground Zero, compared with 54% against

Just 20% of U.S. voters favor the building of an Islamic mosque near the Ground Zero site of the World Trade Center in New York City. Fifty-four percent (54%) oppose the planned building of a mosque near where Muslim terrorists brought down the skyscrapers by crashing commercial airliners into them on September 11, 2001. Three thousand people died in the incident and related attacks that day. Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and 50% of voters not affiliated with either major party oppose building the mosque near the World Trace Center site. Democrats are evenly divided on the question. Only 13% of voters think America’s relationship with the Muslim world will be better a year from now. Thirty percent (30%) say that relationship will get worse, and 48% think it will stay the same.
