This was passed on to me by a good friend, who knows how I feel about the auto bailouts, and that I give Ford a lot of credit for not taking government money.
Apparently, I’m not alone. This is a Rasmussen report:
46% More Likely To Buy Ford ‘Cause It Didn’t Get A Bailout
Public opposition to the auto bailouts may translating into consumer buying decisions, with 46% of Americans now saying they are more likely to buy a car from Ford because it did not take government money to stay in business. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 13% say they are less likely to buy a Ford because the company didn’t receive a bailout, and 37% say it has no impact on their car buying.
Keep at it Ford. We’ll keep driving (or at least I will as soon as I get my truck).
