San Francisco voters are leaning in favor of a $248 million bond measure to fund street repair, according to a city-commissioned poll.

The survey, conducted by Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, Metz & Associates, found that the measure would have the two-thirds votes needed to pass if the election was held today, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

According to the poll, 91% of likely voters thought poor streets and sidewalks were a somewhat serious problem, the paper said.

A similar bond measure was pulled from the ballot in 2009 because of opposition. According to the Chronicle, the city spent $29,000 on the poll.
