Lane County Commissioner Job Performance Trend

image003

Though the approval rating has increased significantly since 2012, the disapproval rating increased sharply since 2013. This is almost entirely due to undecided respondents moving into the disapproval category. In other words, the good new is that more people are paying attention to Lane County. And the bad news for the commissioners is that more people are paying attention to Lane County.

QUESTION: How would you rate the job the Lane County Board of Commissioners is doing: excellent, good, fair, poor?

METHODOLOGY: 200 live telephone interviews of Lane County likely general election voters were conducted each of February 29-March 3, 2012, October 28-29, 2013, and June 29-30, 2015. The margin of error at the median is 7%.

“Excellent” and “good” responses were grouped as “approve” and “fair” and “poor” responses were grouped as “disapprove.” This is a common methodology and is, in general, a better predictor of election results.
