A new poll from Public Policy Polling has been released
Democrats (69/21) are more in favor of rejecting the bill than Republicans (58/29) are of accepting it. But independents have moved from 52/40 opposition to it in May to 46/44 support for it now.
The odds are still stacked against SB 5 staying enacted but just like we saw in the Wisconsin recalls the anger is not there at the same level it was during the spring, which has to be a slight cause of concern for those working to reject it.
We discussed the liklihood of this tightening some time ago. Repeating our advice from that post
The bottom line -
- We have to work hard through the summer and fall to talk to voters and convince them that repealing SB5 is the right thing to do
- In the closing month of the election get as many people to vote early as possible
- On election day, get as many supporters of repeal to the polls as possible
That's a lot of work. Ready for it?
