A straw poll posted within a Daily News story today is asking readers if they would use the "subway to the sea" of not. So far, with only around 200 votes as of this writing, it's a split vote. Earlier today, the poll indicated losing results for subway ridership. Posting to his Facebook page, former LA Times transportation reporter Steve Hymon notes that "if most of those readers are from the Valley (perhaps a dubious presumption), it's impressive that 48% would ride." Continued, "I actually think it's interesting that 48% would ride -- shows that almost half of DN readers find themselves on Westside for something. Another kernal in the story: Najarian, a Republican, expresses support for subway saying it would benefit Glendale residents while Antonovich spokesman remains opposed." Yes, we believe in the butterfly effect of the subway, too. Supervisor Antonovich thinks it will "have no impact on our regional transportation crisis," his spokesman said.
