Courts Complex poll brings good news to supporters

Tuesday, July 14, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

Results of a poll conducted by Tulchin Research show that a bond measure to build a new Civil & Family Courts Complex is “well-positioned to win voter approval in November, assuming that supporters have the necessary resources to run an effective campaign,” according to the group. The poll surveyed 400 likely voters with landlines. According to the research group, “Based on a basic description of the bond measure, 54 percent of voters say they would vote for the measure if the election were held today while 40 percent indicate they would vote against it. But in a simulated engaged campaign in which respondents hear arguments both in favor of and in opposition to the measure, support grows significantly. After messaging from both sides, voters favor the measure by a 28-point margin, with more than six in ten voters (61%) supporting it to just a third (33%) opposed.”
