We see a lot of people citing polling that says "60 percent of Americans oppose the building of the Ground Zero mosque," but I wonder what question(s) are being asked.
I would love to see Kos commission a poll which included the following three questions:
- Do you favor or oppose building a mosque at Ground Zero?
- Would you favor or oppose building a Christian church at Ground Zero?
- Would you favor or oppose the building of a Muslim Community Center several blocks from the Ground Zero site which was blocked from view of Ground Zero by other buildings?
I'd really like to see the differences between the response to each of these questions. I think it would tell us a lot about the real problem we're facing.
