Hey Nick Coleman...put this in your (pipe) and (smoke) it...
Minnesotans are satisfied with their leaders' handling of the collapse and don't support a gas tax increase.
Minnesotans aren't clamoring for action from state leaders in the wake of the Interstate 35W bridge collapse, a new Star Tribune Minnesota Poll has found, supporting neither a gas tax increase nor a new special session to fund bridge repairs.
The poll, which surveyed 802 Minnesota adults Sept. 18 through 23, also indicates that the public doesn't fault Gov. Tim Pawlenty or the DFL-led Legislature for not dealing with the bridge collapse in a recent special session.
Sixty-eight percent approved of the way Pawlenty handled the disaster, and 58 percent approved of the Legislature's handling of it.
