In a city where too many issues reveal stark divisions along racial, geographic and socioeconomic lines, there is at least one issue where most residents appear to broadly agree: Using public resources to finance a stadium for the D.C. United pro soccer team is a bad idea. New Washington Post polling shows roughly six in ten city residents oppose the idea, as Mayor Vincent C. Gray (D) prepares to push legislators to approve a plan that would spend $150 million to purchase and assemble land for the stadium. The irony is that most city residents now strongly believe it was a good idea to finance the construction of Nationals Park, which costs more than four times as much. Among those most approving of the ballpark are African Americans (77 percent) and residents living east of the Anacostia River (76 percent).
