"Asked if they would support a transit expansion in their community that required tax increases, 51 percent of poll respondents expressed either strong or moderate support"

Who are the people who would pay for the tax increase? Is it the same as the people being asked the question? If those being asked this question expect that people other than themselves (such as the ultra rich for e.g.) will be the ones paying the higher taxes then they are more likely to support the initiative.

51 percent? So what does that mean? 49 percent are against? I don't think that this poll really illustrates convincingly that Americans want transit.

NEXT!
