ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A poll shows the Minnesota Vikings strength on the playing field hasn't helped the football team win fans of its push for a new, taxpayer-financed stadium.

The Minnesota Public Radio/Humphrey Institute poll published Friday showed that a solid majority has no interest in seeing taxes used for a stadium.

The poll of 701 adults found that 64 percent oppose the idea and 30 percent back it, with the rest undecided. The May 13-16 poll has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 5.8 percentage points.

Vikings officials have been seeking taxpayer stadium help for at least a decade. The team's Metrodome lease expires after the 2011 season.

Separately, the poll found that more than half of voters surveyed disapprove of the way the Legislature has done its job.
