Have I missed it? Or has somebody done – and released – a poll of Wake County voters on the school debate?
Most people I run into take it as a matter of faith that the board’s new direction reflects a minority opinion in the county.
True, it was the election for just four board seats that turned things around so dramatically.
But I have a feeling that there is a swing bloc of voters in the middle of this issue. They agree that resegregated schools would be bad. And they share the frustration over school assignments. What they don’t get is whether the two views can be squared.
The opponents of the new board need to understand those voters, because that’s who will ultimately decide what happens.
