Submitters might be lining up to criticise Dunedin’s latest hotel bid, but voters in an Otago Daily Times poll have backed the project.
An informal poll on the ODT’s Facebook page yesterday, asking people to vote using the "love" or "angry" emoticons, showed overwhelming support for the hotel.
From about 1400 responses received by last night, about 1000 people clearly indicated their support for the project, while nearly 200 more hit the "like" button.
Only 129 responses were clearly against the hotel.
The poll, while informal, contrasted with the 271 official submissions received on the hotel proposal, of which 206 opposed the hotel, 58 supported it and seven were neutral.
