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)

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new 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.
