Poll: Americans think ''Miami Vice'' before ''Miami Nice'' -
- MIAMI (AP) — Miami has sun, sand, good weather and beautiful people, but one poll says the first thing most Americans think of when they hear the city's name is “Miami Vice.”
Crime, corruption and illegal immigration top the list of things respondents told Zogby International pollsters asking about perceptions of Miami.
But most of the respondents had never been to Miami or had been away for five years or more.
Pollsters say the responses show how movies and TV shows like “Miami Vice" and "CSI: Miami” shape the public's perceptions of South Florida.
