Transit Poll: other interesting crosstabs

Not surprisingly, Democrats are more supportive of new funding sources for mass transit than Republicans are. But Republicans are not as unfriendly to it as you might think.

73% of Democrats supported some new form of revenue, compared to 16% who did not think there should be any new money for mass transit projects.

For Republicans the numbers were 47% in favor of one of the three funding options presented with 45% opposed to any new money. There is a significant gap between Democratic and Republicans responses but I would have expected a majority of Republicans in the Triangle to be opposed to new transit funding.

There was a significant gender gap in the results as well. While only 22% of women opposed any new funding sources for transit projects, 36% of men were.

Full results here.
