POLL SHOWS MA VOTERS WANT PATS; DO THEY WANT PETE CARROLL?
Published October 31, 1997
A new poll shows that MA voters "are willing to pay" for land and road improvements around Foxboro Stadium to keep the Patriots, according to Tina Cassidy of the BOSTON GLOBE. The Boston Globe/WBZ-TV survey of 400 registered voters, conducted by KRC Communications Research from October 26-29, showed that 57% of the respondents said they "were in favor" of investing money for infrastructure improvements, "provided no funds are used for the stadium;" 22% said they "were" against the idea, while 21% were undecided or refused to answer. In response to a more "general question" asking whether they would "support or oppose the use of state funding" to keep the Patriots in MA, favorability "slipped" to 51%, with 31% against and 18% with no opinion. The poll had a margin of error of +/- 5% (BOSTON GLOBE, 10/31).
