Where Was I? 

Do you ever wonder where people get statistics from polls or where were polls distributed about certain things?

I was reading the news this morning and came across an article. It said that 56% of Americans are willing to pay higher taxes just so that traffic and roadways can be improved.

Ok. When and where was this poll posted or distributed? When they say 56%, that's a bit more than half of the nation.

I certainly oppose higher taxes because they'll only propose a much higher tax hike just to improve those "improved" roadways. Why is it that contractors or whoever responsible for designing roadways, only think about future like in the next 5 years? Why not think for the next 20 years? Like for example, a crowded roadway which has about 2 lanes going each way. The contractors will expand an extra lane or two. Why not just add 4 or 5 more lanes each way? That way you won't have to come back to that site until 20 years later.

Anyways, I went off the point. To whom are these people polling for statistics?
