Another day, another poll showing most New Yorkers oppose mosque at ground zero 

There have been quite a few of these polls about the mosque near ground zero already, but The New York Times weighs in today with another unsurprising result:

Two-thirds of New York City residents want a planned Muslim community center and mosque to be relocated to a less controversial site farther away from ground zero in Lower Manhattan, including many who describe themselves as supporters of the project, according to a New York Times poll.

The poll indicates that support for the 13-story complex, which organizers said would promote moderate Islam and interfaith dialogue, is tepid in its hometown.
