California high-speed rail: 52 percent of voters against project
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KABC) -- A new poll reveals California voters are against the bullet train project linking Los Angeles and San Francisco.
According to a USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times survey, 52 percent of voters want the $68-billion project stopped. Forty-three percent of voters say it should move forward.
The findings are similar to a poll conducted in 2012. State rail officials argued that public support would increase as improvements were made to the plan, but that support hasn't materialized.
The project is a year behind schedule. It is also facing multiple lawsuits.
