POLL: Do you support a downtown streetcar connector?

Seattle has two separate streetcar lines, one serving South Lake Union and the other running from First Hill to Pioneer Square. Ridership and revenue have not met expectations, but advocates argue that would change if the city keeps its promise to add a downtown streetcar connector. Should Seattle spend $286 million to complete the line? Or are scarce transportation dollars better spent elsewhere?
