A poll of 500 Minnesotans taken last week shows a majority are not happy with the state’s deal with the New Jersey Wilf family on a new publicly subsidized Vikings stadium deal.
The KSTP/Survey USA poll asked:
Should the state re-open the stadium legislation and re-work the deal with the Wilfs, the Vikings, and the National Football League? Or should the legislation and deal be left as it is?
- 51% Re-open
- 39% Left As It Is
- 10% Not Sure
- Margin of Sampling Error for this question = ± 4.5%
The poll also asked:
Did the governor and legislature do enough to learn more about the New Jersey case before entering into a deal with Wilfs? Or did they need to do more?
- 23% Did Enough
- 58% Needed To Do More
- 19% Not Sure
- Margin of Sampling Error for this question = ± 4.4%
The poll came as a New Jersey judge is considering how much in damages the Wilfs must pay in a New Jersey real estate fraud case.
After the poll questions had been asked, the New Jersey judge ruled that the Wilfs’ financial information will be made public in that case, although she is allowing them to appeal.
The poll had asked:
Should the Wilfs be required to release their financial information before the Vikings deal goes forward?
- 75% Yes
- 18% No
- 8% Not Sure
- Margin of Sampling Error for this question = ± 3.9%.
