Seven new state polls commissioned by ARTBA and the American Public Transportation Association show primary voters would have a less favorable view of congressmen and senators who do not work to protect their state’s federal highway, public transportation and bridge funding.

The polls, conducted by bipartisan polling firm Purple Strategies in Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Louisiana and South Dakota, found voters overwhelmingly say roads, bridges and public transportation are important to their daily lives and to the state’s economy and think it is “very important” for Congress to fix the Highway Trust Fund so road, bridge and public transportation investment for their state continues.

Media activities announcing the results took place last week in Ohio, New York and Michigan.  More activities are in the remaining states in the days ahead.
