A’s Move Approval: City of San Jose Key Demographics


In the expectation of a money issue coming, the demographics align in the expected way. Democrats most approve and Republicans and non-major-party voters least approve.

Given Mayor Reed’s strong support of the A’s moving to San Jose and his natural base of electoral support, it will be interesting to see if the Republicans and independents will be brought along once the plan is more fleshed out.

Do you approve or disapprove of moving the A’s baseball team to San Jose? IF APPROVE/DISAPPROVE: Is that strongly or somewhat? IF DON’T KNOW: Which way do you lean?

The surveys each consisted of 200 live telephone interviews of City of San Jose likely June 2010 Primary voters conducted June 16-18, 2009, October 26-28, 2009, and February 15-17, 2010. The margin of error at the sample median was 7 percent for each of the surveys. Quotas and/or weights were established by gender, age, party, region, and vote history as part of the turnout model.

CHAID (Chi-squared Automatic Interaction Detection) was used to construct the graphic using demographic data about the survey respondents.
