FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, Monday, Aug. 30, 2004
Half of New Yorkers Believe U.S. Leaders Had
66% Call For New Probe of Unanswered Questions
(Utica, NY) - On the eve of a Republican National Convention invoking 9/11 symbols, sound bytes and imagery, half (49.3%) of New York City residents and 41% of New York citizens overall say that some of our leaders "knew in advance that attacks were planned on or around September 11, 2001, and that they consciously failed to act," according to the poll conducted by Zogby International. The poll of New York residents was conducted from Tuesday August 24 through Thursday August 26, 2004. Overall results have a margin of sampling error of +/-3.5.
BREAKDOWN OF RESULTS)
Less than two in five (36%) believe that the 9/11 Commission had
"answered all the important questions about what actually happened on
September 11th," and two in three (66%) New Yorkers (and 56.2% overall)
called for another full investigation of the "still unanswered
questions" by Congress or Elliot Spitzer, New York's Attorney General.
Self-identified "very liberal" New Yorkers supported a new inquiry by
a margin of three to one, but so did half (53%) of "very conservative"
citizens across the state. The call for a deeper probe was especially strong
from Hispanics (75.6%), African-Americans (75.3%) citizens with income from
$15-25K (74.3%), women (62%) and Evangelicals (59.9%).
Nicholas Levis of NY 9/11 Truth, an advisor on the poll,
agrees, "The 9/11 Commission gave us a plenty of 'recommendations', but far
more plentiful were the discrepancies, gaps and omissions in their supposedly
'final' report. How can proposals based on such deficient findings ever make us
safe? We think these poll numbers are basically saying, 'Wait just a minute.
What about the scores of still outstanding questions? What about the unexplained
collapses of WTC 7, our air defenses, official accountability, the chain of
command on 9/11, the anthrax, insider trading & FBI field probes? There's so
much more to this story that we need to know about.' ?When such a huge
majority of New Yorkers want a new investigation, it will be interesting to see
how quickly Attorney General Spitzer and our legislators respond."
