Rebekah Sanders from the Arizona Republic reports on a poll of local support for the Phoenix Coyotes
Support for the Phoenix Coyotes may be faltering among the team’s closest neighbors, the residents of Glendale, according to a poll released Wednesday by conservative think tank Americans for Prosperity.
Less than a quarter of Glendale voters surveyed said they would support spending taxpayer money to keep the financially struggling team from leaving the city’s Jobing.com Arena, the poll says.
But the survey appears to be partisan-driven and touches on a bailout scenario that city leaders say is off the table.
Public Opinion Strategies, a Republican survey research firm based in Virginia, conducted phone interviews with 300 Glendale voters on March 23.
