Chicagoans Divided on Using Tax Money to Attract Obama Library

“As President Barack Obama’s foundation reviews locations for his library and museum — Chicago is the unofficial frontrunner. But voters in his adopted hometown are divided over whether to use taxpayer dollars to help the Windy City secure and build the future tourist trap. The Chicago Tribune polled Chicagoans on the issue and found reactions split nearly down the middle, with 47 supporting the idea, 45 percent against it and 8 percent undecided. The divide was greater among black poll-takers (61 percent of whom were in favor) and whites surveyed (60 percent were in opposition). Younger voters were more supportive than older voters. Men broke even, 48-48, and women supported the tax question, 47-43.” (via NBC Chicago)
