911 Families-Poll

Survey: 9-11 families do not want convention in

The families of Nine-Eleven victims appear split on whether New York's the right choice for the Republican National Convention. A survey of victims' relatives conducted by The New York Times finds nearly half of the relatives believe the convention should have been held elsewhere. And, about a quarter believe the GOP chose New York "to capitalize" on September eleventh. However, one out of four of those questioned said the Republican Party brought its convention to Manhattan "to support the city" and "show it's safe." The convention starts Monday at Madison Square Garden -- ending a week ahead of the third anniversary of the September Eleventh attack. For the survey The Times interviewed 339 relatives and close friends of victims who were killed in the trade center attack.
