- The majority of New Yorkers have also told pollsters they don't want to build a football stadium for the New York Jets on Manhattan's West Side, but Bloomberg is pushing hard for one anyway. (from Time)
The subject of to built is "the majority of New Yorkers", but I can understand that, logically, it will be some workers, not the majority of New Yorkers, that will do the task. So there is a difference between the understood subject and the agent.
Is that because of "want"？ If the editor simply say:
- The majority of New Yorkers have also told pollsters they will not build a football stadium ...
Does it necessarily mean the New Yorkers will not themselves build the stadium？
I hope I explained myself clearly and any help is appreciated.
