WaterFix Agencies try “New Math”


Don’t believe everything you read. Although the State Agencies are spending their marketing money trying to spin information to make you believe in the Delta Tunnels. Desperate Times call for desperate measures, I guess.

If you’ve received this in your email box from the WaterFix, know it is 100 percent bogus. News this fake should be illegal.




The actual PPIC survey, quoted, says:

With disappointing rainfall and snow pack totals this winter and talk of another possible drought, 53 percent of likely voters say that the supply of water is a big problem in their part of the state. Asked about the governor’s proposal to build tunnels in the Sacramento–San Joaquin Delta—starting with one tunnel and later adding a second—42 percent of likely voters say this is very important for the future quality of life and economic vitality of California.

Californians will vote in June on Proposition 68 to fund water infrastructure projects. Asked if they would vote for such a bond measure, two-thirds of likely voters (66%) say they would vote yes. An overwhelming majority of Democrats (78%) and a strong majority of independents (66%) say they would vote yes, compared to about half of Republicans (51%).

Somehow, the WaterFix people took “78 percent of Democrats want improved water infrastructure” PLUS only “42 percent say this [WaterFix] is very important” and ended up with “78 want WaterFix.” Maybe it’s new math?

BUT WAIT, Prop 68 isn’t even all about “improved water infrastructure.” The title of Prop 68 is: “Drought, Water, Parks, Climate, Coastal Protection, and Outdoor Access for All Act of 2018.”

78 percent of Democrats want Drought, Water, Parks, Climate, Coastal Protection, and Outdoor Access for All

+ PLUS 42 percent say WaterFix is important

= 78 Percent of Californians want WaterFix

New math?
