Here is a survey that reports 88% of Americans want high-speed rail. Does Hugo Chavez win support this wide?

Where to start? Who did the survey? Poke around the website to see what business these folks are in. Where is the questionnaire that was used? We are told that 88% of respondents are "open" to high-speed rail. That's probably a sound basis for spending mega-bucks. It is even bracing that the press release comes clean that the 88% is down slightly from recent highs.

Crazy. It did make it to the Scientific American website here.
