This is interesting. Lower income, below $30,000, and upper income, above $75,000, are the most likely to support the stadium plan. Middle-income voters, $30,000 to $75,000, were more likely to be opposed. It is possible that this has something to do with the likely property value increase, vs. the tax encumbrances, that the stadium would bring.

Question:
Shall the City of Santa Clara adopt Ordinance 17.20 leasing City property for a professional football stadium and other events; no use of City General or Enterprise funds for construction; no new taxes for residents for stadium; Redevelopment Agency funds capped for construction; private party pays all construction cost overruns; no City/Agency obligation for stadium operating/maintenance; private party payment of projected fair market rent; and additional funds for senior/youth/library/recreation to City’s General Fund?
If the election were held today, would you vote yes or no on this measure? IF YES/NO: Is that strongly or somewhat? IF DON’T KNOW: Which way do you lean?

METHODOLOGY
