According to the results of a SurveyUSA poll released last Thursday, 2 out of 3 San Diego residents aware of ACORN have negative impressions of the community-based organization, which is now embroiled in a national scandal exposed by conservative activists affiliated with BigGovernment.com.
The poll, which surveyed 500 San Diegan adults, also found that residents are strongly in favor (67%) of government funding cuts for ACORN. Across the county, ACORN is the recipient of millions of dollars of public grants funded by taxpayers, which are now under review amid evidence of malfeasance, incompetence, and potentially criminal wrongdoing by its employees. Those supporting funding cuts include the majority of Caucasians (71%), Latinos (50%), and other ethnic minorities (76%).
