Somebody polling on Keystone pipeline

by Deena Winter

Somebody polled Nebraskans over the weekend to try to gauge the best strategies for influencing public opinion of the Keystone XL pipeline that a Canadian company wants to build from Canada to the Gulf Coast.

The pollster asked:

• Whether you’re registered to vote.

• Whether things in the U.S. are going in the right direction.

• Whether things in Nebraska are going in the right direction.

• What kind of feeling people have toward TransCanada, oil companies, environmental organizations, Hillary Clinton, Ben Nelson, President Barack Obama, Keystone XL Pipeline, pollution, the price of oil and food, the quality of public education, the economy and unemployment and access to affordable health care.

• Whether people support business interests, environmental concerns, economic growth and whether Ben Nelson has performed well enough to be re-elected or whether it’s time for a change.

• How much people have heard about the TransCanada pipeline, whether people favor or oppose the pipeline and how interested people are in the pipeline issue.

• Which arguments are most convincing for and against the pipeline.

I could not tell you who is doing the polling — whether it’s Bold Nebraska, TransCanada or a politician eyeing Nelson’s seat. If you have some insight, let me know.

    Who was behind it? Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that out.

    Trump is going to trial in November for Racketeering and again in December for being accused of child rape.
    He is in the eyes of multiple women of esteem and education to be a sexual predator.
    He has not released his taxes nor paid taxes. Trump also used foundation money to pay legal fees. He abused the family of a war hero. His Trump tower in Toronto is in receivership in Toronto.
    Along with $301 million loans last year.
    This man is not a business man.. he is an attention seeker.
