New opinion poll by No-on-E: Amendment E will be devastatingly defeated in November
The No-On-E campaign just issued a press release with their own poll results. And guess what - Amendment E is going to be massively crushed in a couple of weeks.
According to a poll commissioned by the No on E Coalition and released today, South Dakotans are overwhelmingly opposed to Amendment E. The survey found that 46 percent of voters oppose Amendment E, 42 percent are undecided and only 12 percent say they support the measure.Visit http://www.no-on-e.com for more information.
The survey simply asked: “Based on what you know or have heard, if the election were held today, would you vote yes to adopt Amendment E, or no to reject Amendment E.”
“It is clear from our polling that the more South Dakotans learn about Amendment E, the more they reject it,” said Bob Moore, president of Moore Information. “After hearing the Attorney General’s explanation, the percentage of registered voters opposing Amendment E increases to 64 percent.”
Amendment E, known as the jail for judges amendment, would allow jurors, county commissioners, city council members, school board members, judges and others to be given jail terms or fines because of their decisions. The amendment would also strip them of public insurance coverage and up to one-half of their retirement benefits, for making decisions which break rules defined by the proposed amendment’s special grand jurors.
The telephone poll of 400 registered voters was conducted Oct. 16-17 by Moore Information, a public opinion research firm with offices in Portland, Ore. and Washington, D.C. The sampling error is plus or minus five percent.
