Nearly half of American voters say they'd be more likely to vote for their member of Congress if they supported investing in broadband improvements, according to the results of a Zogby International poll.
Zogby surveyed 4,143 likely voters earlier this month about a range of technology-oriented issues. According to the results, 91 percent of the respondents believe that broadband access is somewhat or very important to their lives. And 43 percent said a commitment to broadband investment in their regions would win their votes in upcoming congressional races. Still, 27 percent of those surveyed said it isn't a priority for their vote.
