Port Polls

In today’s Crain’s Insider [subscription required]:

“A straw poll yesterday of the New York congressional delegation shows unanimous opposition to letting Dubai Ports World operate in New York Harbor, at least pending an investigation.” Crowley, Serrano, Owens, and Velazquez did not respond to the paper’s inquiry.

Also opposing the deal: 69% of respondents to a Crain’s New York Business online poll.
