Eugene Homeless Protest Policy and SLEEPS Favorability

EUG1309OUT3 HOMELESSCORRES-GRFX0

This correspondence analysis confirms what one would expect from the earlier posts. There is a strong correlation between disapproving of Eugene’s policy on homeless protesters and unfavorability towards SLEEPS.

One can conclude most see Eugene’s homeless protester policy as too much in favor of the SLEEPS protesters.

QUESTION:
Do you approve or disapprove of how the City of Eugene is handling homeless protesters?

METHODOLOGY: 200 live telephone interviews of likely 2014 Eugene General Election voters were conducted September 23-24, 2013. The margin of error at the sample median is 7 percent.

How is Lane County doing handling the homeless protesters?

It’s clear that Lane County government, as with the City of Eugene, is not perceived as doing a good job handling the homeless protesters.

However, it’s probably not a good idea to read this that the county should give in to the homeless protesters. SLEEPS is not seen favorably http://lindholmcompanyblog.com/?p=9804 And neither is expanding homeless camping:  http://lindholmcompanyblog.com/?p=9424

METHODOLOGY: 200 live telephone interviews of likely 2014 Eugene General Election voters were conducted September 23-24, 2013. The margin of error at the sample median is 7 percent.

Mayor Piercy’s job performance rating dropped steeply early in the year. It remains low. This is probably due to the failed measure in May.

EWEB Smart Meter Program

The public narrowly opposes the EWEB Smart Meter program.

Particularly noteworthy is the quarter of likely voters who have no opinion. Typically, one would expect a “don’t know” around 10 percent or so. This high percentage of “don’t knows” implies that there is still very little general knowledge about this issue. Certainly there is not enough to make a decision.

QUESTION: Do you support or oppose EWEB’s smart meter program?

METHODOLOGY: 200 live telephone interviews of likely 2014 Eugene General Election voters were conducted September 23-24, 2013. The margin of error at the sample median is 7 percent.

Eugene City Hall Current Location Approval

This question, unlike the one yesterday, asks about approval. Again, there is high support for the current site.

QUESTION:
Do you approve or disapprove of Eugene City Council decision to keep City Hall at its current site?

METHODOLOGY:
200 live telephone interviews of likely City of Eugene General Election voters conducted January 23-24, 2013. The margin of error at the median is plus or minus 7 percent.

This “approval” question was asked after the “support/oppose” question in the survey in order to minimize the bias in the latter.

Eugene City Hall Current Location Vote Poll

This question postulates a vote on the issue. There is overwhelming support to keep City Hall at the current site.

QUESTION:
Do you support or oppose Keeping the Eugene City Hall at its current site?

METHODOLOGY:
200 live telephone interviews of likely City of Eugene General Election voters conducted January 23-24, 2013. The margin of error at the median is plus or minus 7 percent.

Eugene Downtown Public Safety Zone

Strong support for the downtown public safety zone continues.

QUESTION:
Do you support or oppose the City of Eugene having a Downtown Public Safety Zone?

METHODOLOGY
200 telephone interviews of likely 2012 Eugene General Election voters were conducted September 9-10, 2012 and January 23-24, 2013. The margin of error at the sample median for each survey is 7 percent.

Plastic Bag Ban Polling

Favorability towards the plastic bag ban increased significantly after it was approved by the city council. Negatives remained constant.

QUESTION
Do you approve or disapprove of the City of the Eugene Plastic Bag Ban? (January 2013)
Do you support or oppose the proposed City of Eugene Plastic Bag Ban? (December 2011 and September 2012)

METHODOLOGY
200 telephone interviews of likely 2012 Eugene General Election voters were conducted on December 5-6, 2011, September 9-10, 2012, and January 23-24, 2013. The margin of error at the sample median for each survey is 7 percent.

Polling on Proposed Lane Jail Measure at $0.50/$1,000

At $50/$100,000 the measure would narrowly pass among Eugene General election voters. This is slightly better than than the $75/$100,000. These results imply voters are price sensitive.

These polling results Thursday were not as strong as Wednesday. This implies the brief flirtation with a pay raise for the county administrator hurt the proposal.

As a reminder, this is not meant to simulate a countywide May Special election. This result is probably as good as it would get at this time. Based on past elections, Eugeneans are more likely to vote yes and general election voters are more likely to vote yes than special election voters.

QUESTION:
If an election were held today, would you vote yes or no on a Lane County property tax increase of $150 for a $200,000 home per year dedicated to increase the number of jail beds?

METHODOLOGY:
200 live telephone interviews of likely City of Eugene General Election voters conducted January 23-24, 2013. The margin of error at the median is plus or minus 7 percent.
