55% Think Board of Trustees Should Reverse Decision

 

Alexandria, VA. – A new poll was just released tonight showing huge public support for Band Director Waters on the eve of the OSU Board of Trustee’s meeting on Friday.  The telephone poll of 493 Columbus Area Residents was released Wednesday night.

The Controversy over the firing the OSU Band Director has been widely and closely watched with 80 percent of residents polled saying they are aware of the controversy.

On the issue of rather the Board of Trustees should reverse President Drake’s decision only 21 percent of Central Ohioans support the Drake decision.  55 percent of those surveyed believe that the Board should reinstate the Band Director.  Even more alarming to the University should be that the older respondents get the more they support the Band Director.  59 percent of prime donor age respondents support the Board reinstating Band Director Waters.

“This controversy is being watched closely by a lot of people.  I think it is fair to say they believe this has been very badly handled,”  Barry Bennett, POP Polling Co-Founder stated.

The poll asked respondents to choose a side in the controversy.  In more bad news for President Drake only 17 back President Drake while 60 percent stand with the Band Director.  Among respondents in prime donors age groups the numbers are even worse with only 15 percent supporting Drake while 66 stand with Waters.

“Interestingly the support for Waters runs steady by sex, age and even partisanship.  This may be the only issue Democrats and Republicans agree on right now,”  Bennett added.

“While Waters may be unemployed he now has very high approval ratings.   Most politicians would love to have those kind of numbers,”  Bennett concluded.

Voters are Becoming Increasingly Aware of the Issue 

 

Alexandria, VA – Vox Populi Polling released a new survey today that found a plurality of Americans believe that Common Core Standards will decrease the quality of education in public schools. Among those polled, 35 percent believe it will decrease quality of education, 22 percent believe it will increase quality of education, 22 percent believe it will make no difference and 17 percent are unsure. The survey also found that 69 percent of the individuals surveyed are familiar with Common Core Standards, but 43 percent have a negative impression and 30 percent have a positive impression. Additionally, 47 percent of those polled believe that there should be some standardized testing, but it is over utilized.

“Our survey shows that Americans are becoming increasingly aware of Common Core Standards,” said Vox Populi Polling spokeswoman Lisa Boothe. “The more familiar people are with the issue, the less they like it. Americans are also concerned that Common Core Standards will decrease the quality of their children’s education.”

METHODOLOGY: The sample size for the survey is 810 parents with school-aged children, taken from a listed sample of registered voters. The margin of error is +/- 3.4%. 653 interviews were completed using automated telephone technology and 157 were conducted using mobile-based survey technology.  All interviews were conducted August 24 – August 25, 2014 by Vox Populi Polling.  The total percentages for responses may not equal 100% due to rounding.

Plagiarism Proves Major Obstacle for Walsh 

 

Vox Populi Polling released a new survey today that found Republican Representative and Senate candidate Steve Daines has a 13-point lead on incumbent Democrat Senator John Walsh. Among those surveyed, 56 percent of voters disapprove of Walsh’s job performance. Even more troubling for Walsh, 53 percent of voters said reports that he plagiarized his master’s thesis would make them less likely to vote for him. 

Additionally, 54 percent of voters are less likely to vote for Walsh due to a report from the Inspector General of the Department of the Army that found he improperly used his position as the Adjutant General of the Montana National Guard.  

“As charges of plagiarism and misconduct haunt John Walsh on the campaign trail, Steve Daines remains in the driver’s seat,” said Vox Populi Polling spokeswoman Lisa Boothe. “Not only do the majority of voters disapprove of Walsh’s job as their Senator, but he is facing serious allegations that could prove to be a major obstacle for him.” 

METHODOLOGY: The sample size for the survey is 798 active voters taken from a listed sample of registered voters who voted in the 2010 or 2012 general election or registered since the 2012 general election. The margin of error is +/- 3.5%. 696 interviews were completed using automated telephone technology and 102 were conducted using mobile-based survey technology. All interviews were conducted August 3 – August 4, 2014 by Vox Populi Polling. The total percentages for responses may not equal 100% due to rounding.

New Poll Shows Republican Foley in Striking Distance of Governor Malloy

 

In a recent survey in Connecticut, Vox Populi Polling found that Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Foley is in striking distance of Democrat incumbent Dannel Malloy. The survey also indicates that Education and Democracy Party candidate Jonathan Pelto is not doing Malloy any favors. With months to go until the November election, Malloy only leads Foley 35 to 34 percent with Pelto picking up 3 percent and 27 percent of voters undecided. Among independent voters, Foley leads Malloy 36 to 24 percent. Further, the majority of respondents said that they disapprove of Malloy’s performance as Governor. 

“Republicans have a potential pick up opportunity in Connecticut,” said Vox Populi Polling pollster Brent Seaborn. “With the majority of voters disapproving of Dannel Malloy’s performance as Governor and a third party candidate in the race, this seat is prime for Tom Foley’s taking.”

METHODOLOGY: The sample size for the survey is 550 active voters taken from a listed sample of registered voters who voted in the 2010 or 2012 general election or registered since the 2012 general election. The margin of error is +/- 4.2%. 443 interviews were completed using automated telephone technology and 107 were conducted using mobile-based survey technology. All interviews were conducted July 27– July 28, 2014 by Vox Populi Polling. The total percentages for responses may not equal 100% due to rounding.
