News1130/PlaceSpeak Poll: First week results are in!
The News1130/PlaceSpeak discussion has been active for a week now and has received more than 300 responses from people weighing in on the upcoming transit plebiscite.
Region-wide, the “No” side is taking the lead with 59% of votes compared to the “Yes” side’s 41% of votes.
Interestingly, the trend is reversed in Vancouver which has the largest number of respondents (38%) in comparison to other regions. Vancouver has responded with an almost 2-1 ratio for the “Yes” side and a majority of 63% “Yes” votes.
In contrast, responses from the City of Surrey were overwhelmingly for the “No” side reflecting an 82% majority. Surrey and White Rock together represent 16% of the total responses.
New Westminster was close, with 55% “No” to 45% “Yes.”
Delta, Richmond, Burnaby, North Vancouver, Coquitlam, Langley, Port Coquitlam, West Vancouver and Port Moody were all majority “No” votes. However, the sample sizes are still relatively small in these areas.
