ASI E-News Poll Results 4/12/11

April 14, 2011

Would you be in favor of the proposed high-speed rail network that has been under consideration recently by President Obama and the U.S. Department of Transportation?


No: 47%

Yes:  42%

Maybe: 11%



“Take a look at Europe's rail system, we have some catching up to do.”


“High traffic corridors like SF to SD or Dallas to Houston would use the train heavily and reduce the reliance and expense of air [travel].”


“It’s about time we got serious and caught up with the rest of the world on our rail system.”


“This is all political boondoggle. Besides, we cannot afford this anyway.”


“The upfront money is the short side of the financial requirement. Obama needs to stop spending money we don’t have.”


“We need to invest in high speed rail and in local/regional light rail transit systems. Raising energy costs for transportation will limit growth.”
