New Poll Shows Minnesotans Support Vikes Stadium
A new poll released Friday says Minnesotans support the current plan to build a stadium in downtown Minneapolis.
The poll was commissioned by Home Field Advantage, a group of Minneapolis business and community leaders, and was conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research Inc.
In the last week, 1,000 Minnesotans were asked a series of questions about the Vikings Stadium discussion. More than 70 percent of those polled said it was important that the Vikings remain in Minnesota.
In the findings, 20 percent of participants said they have followed the discussion about building a new Vikings stadium in Minnesota closely, 53 percent said they were following somewhat closely.
Participants were also asked if they support or oppose a stadium paid for with state gambling and existing revenues, along with money from the Vikings. To that question, 61 percent supported the plan, 30 percent opposed.
