Analysis
As you can see, consistently, only about 30 to 35% of people want to demolish the Cathedral.  Those wanting restoration range from 38.9 % to 69.5%.  In one poll, the one just above, the Anglicans added a third option, that of “traditional” which muddies the choice.  However, those wanting this option clearly are more inclined to the “retention” aspect, so if this option was not available, most votes for “traditional” would go the way of the “restoration” votes, thus moving the restoration percentage to about 55%.
So, overall, the mood is for restoration, not demolition !  This is clear !
