Skip to comments.LA Times Downplays Overwhelming Result of Own Online Poll on Arizona Boycott

The cactus in the photo at right planted along the Arizona border with California gives a pretty good indication of the reaction of that state to the boycott directed at them by the Los Angeles city council over the new immigration law. However, what is the opinion of folks in California? If a Los Angeles Times poll showed overwhelming support for the boycott, do you not think this would be front page news? Well, the results were overwhelming...97.6% of the respondents to this L.A. Times poll were opposed to the boycott of Arizona. The poll question: "Was the L.A. City Council right to pass a boycott of Arizona?" Here are the results:
Yes. Arizona needs to feel the consequences of enacting a bad law. 2.1% (378 votes)
Yes, though the boycott should be more of a symbolic gesture than an official measure. 0.4% (64 votes)
No, but only because doing so is probably illegal and not in L.A.'s interest. 4.2% (771 votes)
No. The city should mind its own business. 93.4% (17,030 votes)

That won’t be trumpeted on the front page.

proud to be an AZ racist, sexist, bigoted homophobe.
The City of Los Angeles has enough problems on its own plate to be worried about straightening out Arizona.
Just another example of how out of touch the media is.
Just another example of how the media is losing its ability to sell their propaganda.
Thank God for the Internet!
Visited the site to Freep their poll.
Even the liberal readers of the LA times agree with us.
I believe it’d be over 99% in most parts of the country
Yeah but did you read the comments posted below the poll?
That was some good reading! >Bo)
I support the boycott. The Lakers should forfeit their games against the Suns. It’s the right thing to do.
I read all the comments yesterday on this in the Times Online.... It was 90% supporting Arizona and that is here in LA with LA readers which is not what the paper wants you to believe. The media and the governments in Washington are so out of step with the public and voter. I have never seen such disconnect and dishonesty. Ever. NOVEMBER BABY!
