Last weekend, we noticed that the San Diego U-T had a new poll up – as they do every Saturday in their print edition. This one asked readers whether they would cross a striking grocery workers’ picket line.
The U-T poll asked:
“With a grocers strike stirring at Albertsons, Ralphs, and Vons, we wondered whether you’d choose to cross the picket lines.”
The choices offered were “Yes, I’m a loyal customer.” or “No, I’ll shop elsewhere.”
The online SignOnSanDiego version had the “yes’s” winning. So, the Rapid Response Network recently put together by progressive bloggers and others from last weekend’s Economic Summit jumped into the fray. Messages and emails were sent out or placed on several facebooks, twitter, and out on email blasts to have people join the poll.
Apparently, it paid off. This morning the U-T print version published their results:
46.4% Yes, I’m a loyal customer.
53.6% – No, I’ll shop elsewhere.
Total responses: 3,011
