"The answer is - no regrets," he responded to an inquisitive reporter.
According to a Sienna College poll published on Wednesday, 64% of New Yorkers oppose Park51, while 27% show their support. When asked if workers have the right to build a mosque near Ground Zero in regards to the Constitution, 64% said that they do have the right, while 28% said that they do not.
