It really depends on how they did the poll... WWAY's online polling does not prevent multiple votes. With a public proxy or proxy software someone could crank up 100's of votes. I actually witnessed this on the poll about "How do you think the petition against a taxpayer-funded ballpark will affect the future of the Sharks and Hammerheads?" I watched votes matched vote for vote; "I think it will vs. I think it won't", with over 100 votes being placed during 1 hour late on a Friday evening (yes, I don't have a life).
Just saying - WWAY polls may not be a valid indication of what the general population of Wilmington really wants.
What would be really good (and I think Councilwomen Padgett said this) if the City (or 3rd party) would conduct a proper poll. Key would be providing the pros (yes there are some - like $42M could really kick start the construction industry here in Wilmington which IMHO we really need - see note above on having a life) and cons to the stadium so the people really understand both sides to the question.
