State Fair poll results

The Minnesota House of Representatives has released the results of the poll it took at the State Fair, with about two-thirds of those “voting” showing support for the constitutional amendment on the ballot in November that dedicates motor vehicle sales tax money to transportation projects.

On other issues….

  • A longer school year went down to defeat 46.7 percent to 41.3%
  • 51.6% percent say the Legislature should not vote on a Vikings stadium in Anoka County (will someone please explain to me why the stadium issue isn’t a bigger deal in legislative races than it’s been so far?)
  • 75.2% said pharmacists shouldn’t be allowed to reject the filling of prescriptions they think is morally wrong.
  • 71.7% approve a smoking ban in restaurants and bars.
  • 55.8% approve of the “health impact fee.”
  • 52.4% said drivers under the age of 18 shouldn’t have more than one passenger under the age of 21 in the car.
  • 52.4% oppose an increase in the state’s gasaoline tax.
  • 67.8% said farmers should be required to notify neighbors when they intend to use pesticides and fertilizers.
  • 57% said immigrant students who are not here legally should not get the in-state tuition rate at state colleges and universities.
  • 67% said students in some form of medicine here should get some sort of break
  • 57.8% said veterans pensions should be exempt from state income taxes.
  • 36.2% said the pronto pup is their favorite state food.

    Oh, great. Now some legislator is going to propose a bill naming the pronto pup as the official state fair food.

    Let the legislating begin!.

      The stadium issue is too controversial for legislative candidates to touch, the public has stadium fatigue, and the Vikings sure aren’t going to bring it up publicly until after the elections. But CCARL (CCARL.com) will do their best to make it an issue in the primaries (next Tuesday, Sept. 12) and the general election.
