Poll: Support for bullet train measure tightening as Election Day draws near
By JEFF MITCHELL, PolitickerCA.com Editor
Proposition 1A, the ballot measure that promises to build the nation’s first true high-speed rail system in California, continues to hold the favor of a solid percentage of Golden State voters, a Field Poll released Saturday shows.
The survey shows that 47 percent of those polled said they intended to vote for the ballot measure next Tuesday that would authorize the state to sell $9.9 billion in construction bonds for the project’s initial San Francisco to Los Angeles leg. The poll found that 42 percent would oppose the initiative and 11 percent said they remain undecided on the issue.
