ROLLING DOWN THE RIVER: CINCY VOTERS FAVOR RIVERFRONT SITE

          A CINCINNATI POST/WCPO-TV poll shows that Cincinnati's
     riverfront "is the preferred location for a new Reds
     ballpark by an overwhelming margin of more than 2 to 1,"
     according to Ken Wilson of the CINCINNATI POST.  The poll of
     411 registered Hamilton County voters found that 55% favor
     the riverfront, 26% favor Broadway Commons downtown, 16% are
     undecided and 4% won't vote on the issue.  It shows "broad
     support for the riverfront site both inside and outside of
     the city of Cincinnati and across nearly all age, racial and
     income groups."  The only segment where Broadway Commons has
     strong support is among those with income of $75,000 or
     more.  Broadway supporters called the poll "unscientific and
     without merit."  The Reds have been "adamantly opposed" to
     any site other than the riverfront (CINCINNATI POST, 10/31).
