According to a new poll, only 22 percent of Miami-Dade citizens support the plan, making it one of the least popular initiatives in the county, reports Kyle Munzenrieder of the Miami New Times.

According to the survey conducted by Armando Ibarra for TeleMiami, 63 percent of local likely voters oppose the plan. As Political Cortadito points out, that’s a bit better than two months ago when a poll conducted by an FIU professors found opposition sitting at 73 percent. Still, things aren’t exactly looking good for the Fins.

Eric Jotkoff, the spokesman for the Miami First Coalition (a PAC created to support the initiative) called into question the pollster’s credentials, and predicts the Fins will emerge victorious in the May 14th election. 

“As voters across Miami-Dade have learned about the unprecedented partnership to modernize Sun Life Stadium and create over 4,000 jobs, our support continues to grow,” he told Cortadito
