I would really like to know how many people were surveyed, and from what areas of Santa Clara County. Did they really ask anyone in San Jose, East San Jose, South San Jose, Morgan Hill, San Martin, Gilroy, Campbell, Santa Clara, or Sunnyvale? The answers they revealed to us sound like those of people in the northernmost parts of the county only.

More fun and possibly more accurate would be to make a survey of one's own. Simply spend a day driving, then walk around and chit-chat with people. Somewhere between road rage and happy conversations you'll come up with your own conclusion.
