On Home or Question page show close/reopen status

Would it be possible to show how many close-votes have been cast against a question when viewing the main list of questions on the site?

That would allow people to quickly determine which questions they should review and cast a vote if needed (without having to click on each question individually)

Example:

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

I would rather not see this. I think it would encourage premature closing of questions (which is, arguably, already a problem). The 10K tools have a list of questions with the highest close votes already. I say keep it there in the 10K tools. These users are considered the most trusted to cast the votes appropriately and as such get the tools to help expedite that.
