ROLLING DOWN THE RIVER: CINCY VOTERS FAVOR RIVERFRONT SITE
Published November 2, 1998
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).
