    This poll is not surprising to me. It does support my belief that as Chittenden County goes, so goes Vermont, and thus my belief that the Senate ought to have equal representation from each County. That in my opinion, would help rural Vermont insure that it is not subjugated to the whims of the most urban Counties. There are in fact two Vermonts, Chittenden County, and traditional Vermont.
