Voters confuse Florida HSR & SunRail projects


We came across this article from the Florida, Orlando Sentinel newspaper about how with the recent stroke of his pen (Transportation Sec. Lahood) started the new SunRail commuter rail project (first phase of 31 miles) for Orlando, there was a poll conducted by the Orlando Regional Realtor Association on June 22.

They asked 400 voters what best described the project.  36% correctly identified the project.  But 45% of voters thought that the SunRail project was the High Speed Rail project running West to East linking Tampa to Orlando (that was cancelled earlier this year by Florida Gov. Scott.)  17% were unsure.

You can find the story here:

Could this be the same confusion for projects going to Victorville and Anaheim?
