Vos Survey Shows Overwhelming Support For Republican Agenda
Annual questionnaire answered by 1,500 constituents
Many Republican policy positions are inline with the constituent wishes in Racine County, according to an annual survey issued by State Rep. Robin Vos.
Survey results, released by Vos on Thursday, were highlighted by an overwhelming amount of 63rd Assembly District respondents that said they were in favor of cutting state spending (70 precent) and property tax freeze (77 percent).
"The results were very in line with our legislative agenda from our spring session," Vos said in his newsletter that contained the survey results.
The survey was completed by 1,500 constituents. The methodology of the survey was not disclosed.
"One of the most important aspects of my job is to listen and respond to my constituents," Vos said in a statement. "This survey is just one way I get feedback from them."
The survey also showed about 80 percent of respondents who wanted SeniorCare cut and about two-thirds of the respondents answered that they are in support of expansion of school choice scholarships.
In terms of non-fiscal policy stances, more than 80 percent of respondents answered that they agree with voter identification measure that was approved this summer. Another 64 percent answered that they agreed with concealed carry legislation, which also passed this summer.
One of the most telling aspects of the questionnaire was respondents rating of elected officials. The rating was done in a five-point scale with with 1 being very satisfied, 2 being satisfied, 3 being somewhat satisfied, 4 being dissatisfied and 5 very dissatisfied.
State Senator Van Wanggard was given a rating of 2.7, Congressman Paul Ryan got a 2.2 and Vos received a 2.3. President Barack Obama received a 3.9.
