You're drawing poor conclusions from this very limited poll. The ONLY thing this poll shows is that 90% of ENTHUSIASTS would like a Jetstream Blue offered on the Camaro. Nothing else.

You can separate those people into:

Those who might like it...but would still want one of the other blues more
Those who voted just because they like polls
Those who voted even though they aren't getting blue of any kind; but wanted to advance your cause.
Those who would like to see a Jetstream blue, but if not...it wouldn't matter as they'd still get one of the other blues (I'll bet 90% of the 90% falls into this category)

None of the above would do anything to make offering Jetstream worth it to the company.

GM does studies, etc to determine what people (not enthusiasts; but average, everyday people) will buy. And they take the most salable options/features, and invest money into those...I wouldn't discount this as "the old GM"...because it could very well be the opposite.

It is kinda weird if you think about it. Even though they are all nice colors it is almost like haveing three reds. One is red, one is more red than orange and the other is a maroon red. Meanwhile, there is almost a faded yellow... but then you have badass colors like cyber gray, the black is impressive, and the silver ice is breath-taking (all shades of one color).

... ahh, nevermind. I wont say anymore. I just hope GM pulls through this garbage thats going on. We're all in similar stages with the company in our own way, so I'm sure most of us understand.

anyway, I'm pullin for the General.

Where did they do these so called "studies". I'm willing to bet they took place at schools for the blind!
