SAN DIEGO -- San Diegans are strongly divided on whether to support the Chargers downtown stadium plan, according to a new poll released Friday. 
 
When asked whether they would support November’s Measure C, which would authorize the construction of a joint-use stadium and convention center annex, 39 percent of respondents were in favor, 36 percent were against and a staggering 25 percent were undecided. 
 
SurveyUSA interviewed 800 people for the 10News/San Diego Union Tribune poll. 
 
When asked if Measure C would be financially beneficial for the city of San Diego, 33 percent of respondents said it would be a moneymaker, 33 percent said it would be a money loser, 23 percent were unsure and 11 percent thought the city would break even. 
 
33 percent of respondents believed that raising the hotel tax from 12.5 to 16.5 percent would be a major deterrent to visitors, while 28 percent thought it would be a minor deterrent. 
 
The poll had a sampling error of +/- 3.8 percent. To see the full results, click here
