POLL SHOWS MA VOTERS WANT PATS; DO THEY WANT PETE CARROLL?

          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).
