Polls: New Yorkers Worried About Another Attack, Oppose GZ Mosque

US

A new Marist poll shows that a majority, 51 percent, of registered New York City voters oppose building a mosque two blocks from Ground Zero. Additionally, 54 percent believe the proposed mosque "offends the memory of the victims of the September 11th attacks and their families."

That same poll shows that nine years later, 56 percent of those polled are still concerned about another New York City terrorist attack. That's not surprising considering that another Marist poll shows 60 percent of New Yorkers still think about September 11th at least once a month.

"Oh my God, I think about it daily. Daily," 75-year-old Bronx resident Jacqueline Samms told the New York Daily News. "I was standing on the courthouse steps."
