Likelihood of a Lane County Bankruptcy

This question was asked a little more than a month ago. Events have developed a bit. However, the results still seem interesting and relevant.

Lane County voters generally see bankruptcy as very unlikely.

How likely do you feel it is that the State of Oregon will let Lane County go bankrupt, very likely, somewhat likely, somewhat unlikely, or very unlikely?

200 telephone interviews of a random sample of Lane County likely 2012 General Election voters were conducted February 29 through March 2, 2012. The margin of error at the sample median is 7 percent. The percentages might not add up to 100 percent due to rounding.

The term “bankruptcy” was used even though it is technically inaccurate. The term seems to convey the sense of the problem in the clearest and most succinct terms. Multiple outside experts reviewed the question and considered it accurate.
