8664 Releases Polling Data

| 3 Comments

Today, we issued a Press Release and released  polling data indicating strong support for the East End Bridge within Louisville Metro. Now is a critical time for the citizens and elected leaders of this city to make a smart and informed decision.

I thought it would be mildly useful to report an online poll I've been conducting on Louisville History & Issues since mid-April, and it's still ongoing if anyone wants to register at the site and vote.

The question is: "With the East End Bridge in place, would you support building a second Downtown Bridge?" Link: http://www.historyandissues.org/louisville/viewtopic.php?t=1344

Here's the results so far:

- No, it's unnecessary and thus financially wasteful -- 62.5%

- No, but if downtown congestion doesn't significantly clear up after the East Bridge is operational, I may rethink it -- 25.0%

- Yes, but only if the East End Bridge doesn't significantly work to alleviate downtown traffic congestion -- 12.5%

- Yes, unreservedly -- 0.0%

- Unsure - 0.0%

Congrats on this site. Please keep up the good work and fight!

Just a note: if you ever need any of our Streetfilms to play down there on DVD to show lessons from the past on highway removal, just let us know.

How about we avoid common sophomore college fallacies like Affirming the Consequent by using a false premise that there is or will be an East End bridge. There is none and with your resounding 11,000 in support of it -which equals about 1/4 of the population of St Matthews- you won't be getting one.

Try an honest poll next time. And when you take one try polling a few from the East End next time.
