 A survey conducted by the CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Poll revealed that the controversial plan to build an Islamic centre has not been met with lightly with an overwhelming 70% of Americans voting against the building.

The centre which has come to be known as the "Ground Zero Mosque" is planned to be built a few blocks from the World Trade Centre. The centre will include a prayer area, arts centre, lecture hall and restaurant. The poll showed the younger generation illustrating higher tolerance as opposed to the older generation where 60% oppose the plan compared to 40% of those below 50 illustrating that the project may not be welcomed if goes as planned.
 
The poll showed that 82% of the Republicans, 70% of the Independents, and 54% of the Democrats also opposed the plans.
