LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) — A new poll finds a majority of California voters want the $68-billion bullet train project stopped and consider it a waste of money.
A USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times survey published Saturday found that 52 percent of voters say the project to link Los Angeles and San Francisco by high-speed trains should be halted. Only 43 percent said it should go forward.
The findings mirror a poll last year. At the time state rail officials argued that public support would increase as improvements were made to the plan. But the support hasn’t materialized.
