Well, OK. According to a recent poll, Puebloans overwhelmingly support the idea of dumping Black Hills Energy and replacing the private company with some other electricity provider.
The poll, conducted by San Francisco-based Change Research, indicated that 43 percent of local residents would strongly support ditching Black Hills and another 29 percent said they would “somewhat” support such a move. Almost one-fifth of the poll respondents weren’t sure of their positions, with the rest either neutral or opposed to the idea.
In a separate question, 42 percent of respondents said they view Black Hills “very unfavorably” and another 28 percent viewed the company “somewhat unfavorably.” Almost one-fifth were neutral on that question, with the rest saying they viewed Black Hills “somewhat favorably” or “very favorably.”
