image004

There is an even closer partisan link with Measure 97 positions among the major party gubernatorial nominees than among the major party presidential nominees.

QUESTIONS:
If the election for Governor were held today, would you vote for James Foster, Libertarian, or Kate Brown, Democrat, Working Families, or Cliff Thomason, Independent, or Aaron Donald Auer, Constitution, or Bud Pierce, Republican?
IF DON’T KNOW: Which way do you lean?

I would like to talk to you about some measures that will be on the November ballot.
If the election were held today on Measure 97 Increases corporate minimum tax when sales exceed $25 million; funds education, healthcare, senior services, would you vote yes or no?
IF YES/NO: Is that strongly or somewhat?

SAMPLING METHODOLOGY: 400 live telephone interviews of likely Oregon 2016 General election voters were conducted October 3-6, 2016. Likelihood was determined based on modeling and was validated within the questionnaire. The margin of error at the sample median is 7%.

STATISTICAL METHODOLOGY: Correspondence Analysis can be seen as a visual version of a crosstabulation. It represents in distance the similarity between responses from two questions. Responses along the same angle tend to be similar. The closer to the center of the graphic the closer to the median of the electorate.
