Poll shows that 62.4% would vote to stop California’s high speed rail (HSR) project

Original post made by Morris Brown, Menlo Park: Park Forest, on Sep 29, 2011

A new poll has just been published that shows almost 2/3 of California voters want to sop the California High Speed Rail Project.

The poll is available at:

So now, almost 3 years since approval of Prop 1A took place, the voters of California realize what a mistake was made with that approval.

Still the Governor and State legislature seem to be intent on starting this boondoggle by Sept 2012.

The governor and legislature are intent on moving forward with this project because they are in the labor union's pockets. The only people this is good for is them.

Over at Palo Alto online, Gennady Sheyner has just put up a very nice analysis.
