    My point is that a pipeline running halfway between NYC and Atlanta (somewhere in VA) would not be said to be close to either city.

    I think the pipeline is a good idea. What I can't understand is all the hoopla over an addition of 2,000 miles or so of additional pipeline when this country already has 186,000 of liquid oil pipelines already. This pipeline will have safety features the other 186,000 miles do not. Besides, pipelines are a whole lot safer and emit less pollution then transporting all that oil via train and truck. The oil will be transported, it is just a question of how.

    Now I am not for the use of eminent Domain and that stops me from being gung ho about the pipeline. As for living close to a pipeline, I would wager a whole bunch of people would be surprised where these pipelines run and how close they do live to one.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    It almost passed the current Senate, missing by 1 vote. It will probably definitely pass the 2015 Congress and sit on the President's desk waiting for his veto. But if it creates enough temp jobs and lowering oil prices, in comparison to environmental impact, there will be pressure on Obama to sign it.

    I might even agree with you.

    Energy jobs pay above-average income to blue-collar non-college graduate workers. Why we wouldn't want more is beyond me.

    I live in a neighboring state, but not really all that close.

    I do not support it simply because it's not up to us to make it easier to ship Canadian oil to China.

    I think the estimate was that after completion it would generate about 50 full time jobs. Not even a dent economically.

    So is one trying to show a relationship between distance from a thing and support/opposition to it.

    Is the point to show some sort of NIMBY thing?

    I would assume that is the point, and either people will react differently based on distance or not, and the poll is 100 % unscientific, and sometimes it is easier to work with the person who makes a poll than work against them.
