A mid-March poll, we're told, didn't turn up any significant danger signs for the City's $596-million bond issue, which voters will weigh in on May 12. Warning: We got the rundown from an insider, but couldn't get ahold of the actual results of the survey, which was conducted by California-based pollster Ben Tulchin. So take this for what it's worth. Anyway, the weakest of the five bond components – the $87.2-million package of parks & rec and open-space projects – won more than respectable support of 58 percent. Not surprisingly, the strongest was the $337.4-million bundle of street, bridge, and sidewalk projects, which garnered support greater than 80 percent.
