State Senate Panel Passes Dolphins' Stadium Plans; Poll Shows Voters Disapprove
Published March 7, 2013
POLL POSITION: In Miami, Caputo & Olorunnipa in a front-page piece write results of Moreno's poll indicate that the issue is "politically damaging for lawmakers." The poll shows that opposition to the plan "cuts across racial, ethnic, party and geographic lines." Moreno said, "There's not one group of likely voters who supports this idea." But the poll was "criticized by the Dolphins management and lobbyists." Dolphins CEO Mike Dee in a statement said that the poll "asked misleading or unfair questions." The Dolphins "shared only one result from one of their polls," conducted by a group called OnMessage Sports, showing 59% of voters approved of the plan, while 33% disapproved (MIAMI HERALD, 3/7).
