It appears that the local residents of the proposed mosque near Ground Zero aren't happy with the decision to build there.

A Sienna College poll cited by the Associated Press on Thursday found that 63 percent of registered New York voters are opposed to the Cordoba House project, with only 27 percent supporting it.

Sixty-four percent of New York registered voters agreed that the site developers have a constitutional right to build a mosque on the site, with half of those still opposed to the building project.

Twenty-eight percent of those surveyed rejected the notion that the developers have a constitutionally protected right to build an Islamic community center near on the site proposed cite.

The poll's results are consistent with a CNN/Opinion Research poll last week that found that 70 percent Americans were opposed to the planned project, while 29 percent supported it.
