When people vote "no" on Proposal 1 in a few short weeks -- and right now, that looks to be a healthy majority -- it won't be because most of them think our roads are great.

But plenty of voters don't see it that way. There are a dizzying number of reasons why people are against this proposal, many of them contradictory.
