• High Speed Rail

May 9, 2017 - According to a new survey of the San Joaquin Valley conducted by the Institute for Leadership and Public Policy at Fresno State, 58 percent of respondents support the construction of the high-speed rail project.

There are clear differences across party lines. A significant majority of Democrats (74 percent) support construction of high-speed rail, along with a majority of Independents or those who express no party preference (59 percent). However, a majority of Republicans (58 percent) do not support construction of the high-speed rail project in the Valley. Significant differences can also be found among Trump supporters and non-Trump supporters. Among non-Trump supporters, 68 percent are in favor of building high-speed rail, while 62 percent of Trump supporters oppose continuing construction on the project.

Across racial and ethnic groups, non-white groups are the most supportive of the high-speed rail project. Seventy-six percent of Latinos and sixty percent of non-white, non-Latinos, which includes blacks and Asians, support construction of the project. In contrast, 64 percent of whites oppose construction of the high-speed train through the Valley.

When asked about how they would use the high-speed rail if it was completed, 66 percent of respondents in the San Joaquin Valley said they would use it for business, pleasure or both. Thirty-five percent indicated that they would use the train mostly for pleasure, while 28 percent said that they would use the high-speed train for both business and pleasure. Surprisingly, only 3 percent responded that they would use the train mostly for business. In contrast, 30 percent of adults said that they would not use the high-speed rail at all if it was completed.

The findings in the report are based on a random sample of adults from the San Joaquin Valley.
