Oddly enough, since the president fancies himself as looking out for the middle and lower class (how many times have we heard him invoke middle-class tax cuts over the wealthy), the report says that "[u]pper-income Americans are more supportive of the high-speed rail plan than those who earn less than $60,000 annually."
But when it's put in terms of a free market vs. bigger government argument, support for cutting government spending instead of increasing it on high speed rail is significant. "By a 57% to 28% margin, voters believe that cutting government spending would do more to create jobs than building a high-speed rail network."
