Stadium supporters are rolling out poll results on the Minneapolis stadium plan later today at the State Office Building.
Home Field Advantage, the coalition of business and community leaders in Minneapolis, sponsored a phone poll of 1,000 registered Minnesota voters to gauge interest in building the Vikings a new stadium.
Wondering what the Mason-Dixon Polling & Reseach Inc. folks were asking Minnesotans about the Vikings and their prospects for replacing the Metrodome?
Well, we think we got yer polling instrument right here. Or at least one version of it. You can take it yourself and see how compatible you and your NFL companion franchise might be:
The poll isn't the only mischief Home Team Advantage has been up to. They also released a bunch of fabricated economic number claiming MN would lose $533 million if the Vikings leave. The real amount is around $12-$16 million. That means that if we let the Vikings go instead of spending $40 million a year on a new stadium we'd come $24-28 million ahead.
