  • ST3 Voter Survey Results

    A recent Moore Information survey of likely voters residing in the Sound Transit District (May 23-25, 2017) explored voter sentiment about the Sound Transit Three (ST3) funding measure, which passed in November 2016. When voters were asked how they would vote, given the chance to vote again, voters say they would oppose the measure increasing car tabs, sales tax and property taxes, by a 51-37% margin, with 13% unsure. Further, the opposition is intense with fully 44% of voters strongly opposing ST3 today. Read More

  • A Pollster’s New Year’s Resolutions and What We Learned from Mark Twain

    Well, it’s a new year and two months have elapsed since the November elections, two months in which we have had time to assess what happened and take in much of the post-election analysis as well. Frankly, the miscues and misguided analysis that plagued the pre-election coverage of the Presidential race seem alive and well in the ensuing post-election coverage. We thought it might be helpful to break down a few aspects of the election, what hindsight offers and provide some advice on avoiding the pitfalls of the instant punditry that continues to get it wrong. Of course, we realize that as pollsters our credibility may be suspect given the conventional post-election wisdom. But here are some New Year’s resolutions you might find worth considering: Read More

  • Montanans Show Support for Business in Annual Chamber Poll

    The Montana Chamber of Commerce annual Power-Base (P-base) survey of 800 voters statewide in Montana reveals that business organizations like the Montana Chamber of Commerce are well-regarded by voters throughout the state and voters are more likely to vote for a candidate endorsed by the Montana Chamber than a labor union, environmental group, or trial lawyer organization. Read More

  • Montana Voter Attitudes about Iran Nuclear Deal

    Results of Moore Information's recent statewide survey of Montana voters show that by a nearly 3:1 margin, Montanans oppose the “recent nuclear deal between the United States and Iran.” Today, only 23% are in favor, while 60% oppose the deal.

  • Minimum Wage Hike May be a Challenge

    A proposal to increase Oregon’s minimum wage to $12 an hour is supported by 55% and opposed by 41% of voters statewide. Just 4% have no opinion on the issue. While on the surface 55% support may appear promising for supporters, ballot measure campaign observers would not consider passage a sure thing. “Historically speaking, ballot measures that fail to reach 60% in early polling typically end up losing on Election Day,” says Bob Moore, President of national polling firm Moore Information.

  • New Poll Looks at Oregon’s 2016 Race for Governor

  • 2014 GOP Election Success: Some Clouds in the Silver Lining?

    Bob Moore Takes a Closer Look at the 2014 Election Results and Challenges for the GOP in 2016 The November election results have been seen as a huge victory for the Republican Party and well they should be.

  • Blame for Shutdown Falls along Partisan Lines, But a Majority Disagrees with the Tea Party

    Blame for the federal government shutdown fell out on partisan lines; 43% blame Republicans, 31% blame President Obama and Democrats in Congress and 19% say both parties are at fault. The remaining 7% blame neither party or have no opinion. Democrats blame Republicans, Republicans blame Democrats and Independents are divided between blaming Republicans (35%), Obama and the Democrats (32%) and assigning blame to both (26%). The shutdown doesn’t appear to have hurt the GOP in Washington State beyond the partisan advantage Democrats already hold in the state, despite national coverage to the contrary. Read More

  • Moore Insight: Washington’s I-517 Looks to be on Shaky Ground

    With just over a week to go before the November 5th general election, Washington’s Initiative 517, which concerns the initiative and referendum process in the state, is opposed by a narrow margin.

Independents are pessimistic today, though less so than Republicans. Read More

  • Pathway to Citizenship and Amnesty are Both Popular in Oregon

    Our recent survey of Oregon voters reveals wide support for a proposed law that allows illegal immigrants already in the Unites States, with no criminal record, to work toward citizenship, if these immigrants meet specific requirements: 1) apply for legal status; 2) learn English; 3) pay taxes and a penalty; 4) go to the back of the line and work toward citizenship.

  • Who are Oregon’s Non-Affiliated Voters?

    Current voter registration statistics in Oregon show the percentage of voters not registering as a Democrat or Republican is at an all-time high - 30% of the state’s total voting population are not affiliated (23%) or registered with other parties (7%). With Democrats making up 39% of the electorate and Republicans just 31%, the impact of the “NA/other” vote is undeniable in Oregon politics today. Read More

  • Why Class Warfare is Working

    Over the years the familiar refrain from Republicans in response to various Democratic economic proposals has been that the Democrats are engaging in "class warfare," pitting Americans against each other based on economic standing. And Republicans have pretty much convinced themselves that Democrats' line of attack is not very effective and that most Americans see past it. Read More

  • Washington Voters - No Appetite for New Taxes, Spending

    Washington voters are in no mood for raising taxes, and at the same time they want their state government to hold the line on spending. In fact, when it comes to addressing Washington State’s budget challenges, voters prefer reducing spending instead of raising taxes, by significant margins. These are some of the key findings in the latest Moore Information survey of 400 voters in the Evergreen State. Read More

  • Republicans Are Too Concerned With the Rich

  • BIPAC Survey Shows Employers are Trusted, Could Communicate More

    This past election cycle we saw a proliferation of third party groups, or Super PACs, working to impact the outcome of elections. Both sides of the political aisle had their supporters and in several instances these third party groups actually accounted for more spending than did the campaigns themselves. This onslaught of political advertising presents many challenges for candidates and their supporters, but it also provides unique opportunities for organizations that can communicate directly with their stakeholders.

  • Washington Voters’ Perceptions of the Republican Gubernatorial Drought

    In a recent survey of Washington voters we asked respondents which of two views best describes why they think voters in the state have not elected a Republican governor since 1980.

  • Throw Open the Tent Flaps – America is Changing

    After every election all the instant historians tell us what it all means, why one candidate lost, why another won and what lessons we should take from the results.

  • New Poll Shows Obama Leading, but Republicans More Likely to Vote

    Our recent poll of likely voters in Washington State shows Barack Obama leading Mitt Romney, 46-36% with 6% saying they will vote for neither candidate and 11% undecided.

  • Republicans Need to be Responsible on Payroll Tax Holiday

    Republicans are the party of lower taxes and less government spending. But we are also the party of responsible government and spending within our means. Or at least we claim to be. From that standpoint, an extension of the payroll tax holiday is a bad idea for Republicans. More importantly, it is a bad idea for the country. Read More

  • Washington Voters on Social Security and Medicare: Both programs should maintain separate budgeting systems

    In the current debate over federal spending much is made of entitlement programs like Social Security and Medicare and their role in runaway budget deficits. Recently we asked a Smith/Jones question which presented two options to voters: should we manage Social Security, Medicare and the rest of the federal budget as three distinctly different programs or should we allow the funds to intermingle allowing one program to cover shortfalls in another program from year to year. By a staggering 3:1 margin voters say these three items should be managed and maintained separately. Read More

  • Washington Voters Mixed on Health of Medicare System; Not Sold on Ryan Plan

    It's often said in politics that if you are educating, you are losing. So, when we talk about the long term solvency of Medicare and the soundness of the system it's important to assess voters' perceptions and determine what, if anything, they think needs to be done to protect the program. We asked some questions on a recent statewide survey in Washington State to measure what voters thought about the health of the Medicare Program and what they thought of the Ryan Plan to fix the current problems.
