It's your call

September 05, 1991

Callers from throughout the metropolitan region tell SUNDIAL in overwhelming numbers that the proposed congressional redistricting plan is unfair. The negative response ranged from a low of almost 80 percent in Anne Arundel County to a high of more than 94 percent in Baltimore County.

Here's the tally from the six jurisdictions:

City -- Of 112 callers, 99 (88 percent) say the plan is unfair, 13 say it's fair.

Anne Arundel County -- Of 84 callers, 67 (79.7 percent) say unfair, 17 say fair.

Baltimore County -- Of 437 callers, 413 (94 percent) say unfair, 24 say fair.

Carroll County -- Of 30 callers, 25 (83 percent) say unfair, 5 say fair.

Harford County -- Of 34 callers, 30 (88 percent) say unfair, 4 say fair.

Howard County -- Of 31 callers, 27 (87 percent) say unfair, 4 say fair.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as a scientific public opinion poll would be.
