Their newest mistake is that valley residents look forward to the Allentown Hockey Arena, and think that it's a good idea, because 58% of respondents felt the arena would have a positive impact on Allentown.
"Politics aside, financing fight aside, Lehigh Valley residents see this as important to Allentown," Borick said. "Despite all the negative news, the public is fairly positive about what this can do for the city — and that includes people from inside and outside the city."Although the pollster himself concluded in 2009 that the public doesn't appreciate their taxes used for such projects, the poll ignored how people feel about the misappropriation of their taxes for this particular boondoggle. Why this push poll now? It appears to be a response to the the current controversy to add support for the arena project. Pawlowski should buy him lunch. The Molovinsky Survey of Allentonian Opinion, conducted early morning in diners throughout Allentown, thinks the arena is in the wrong place, and they probably will not go there. I would have more respect for their poll, had they done it before they dug the hole.
