sailingalong: Just for your reference and future information, the survey results were a MICA survey. I am not aware of the percentage of registered voters that belong to MICA (why don't you find out since you feel compelled to use the figures), but the 82% is based on a 41% return from the surveys that were sent out. The 82% is based on 2500 surveys that were returned. 82% of 2500 is 2,050 and if we double that to assume that each survey represents 2 registered voters (assuming that all MICA members are registered voters, optimistic), we only have a 31% "vote" (based on 13,000 registered voters). So please, as much as we all respect each others opinions and blogs, let's try to express the facts as they really are. So in your blog above, you need to change 82% to 31%, if you want to use the MICA survey results on this issue.Ed Issler
