In a new "Time" poll, 61-percent of respondents voiced opposition to building a proposed mosque and Islamic center near Ground Zero in New York City.
More than 70-percent said doing so would be an insult to all those who died when terrorists attacked the World Trade Center on September 11th.
The proposed mosque site is just two blocks from Ground Zero.
However, almost 75-percent of likely voters in November's mid-term elections said the controversial issue will not affect how they cast their ballots.
Only about half of the poll's respondents favored having a mosque built near their homes.
Almost a third of those polled also said Muslims should not be allowed to run for U.S. President.
