Today, we have a glimpse at our new survey results on the role that education played in influencing people’s voting choices in the midterm elections, as well as a look back at our survey on the success the Obama administration has achieved in the area of education, which has gained quite a few more responses since our report at the end of August.
First, let’s take a look back. Here is a chart showing the preliminary results on the August survey, the intended-to-be final report at the end of August, and the current figures. As before, obscene remarks have been deleted, while “Other” response that are related to education, but not clearly “yes” or “no” have been allowed to stand, but not included in the “yes” or “no” count.
Notice that while the results were similar overall during August (approximately 3/4 voting “No” and 1/4 voting “Yes,” the proportions now are closer to 2/3 “No” and 1/3 “Yes.”
In this second summary chart, the responses have been ranked. Notice that while the “No” answers were ranked 1, 2, and 3 at the end of August, they are back to being 1, 2, and 5, with “Yes” answers taking 3rd and 4th place, as they did in mid-August.
Here, now is a first look at our November survey results. If you haven’t yet shared your response with us, please don’t forget to vote here!
