A couple of weeks ago I asked you what you felt about the constitutional amendment in Minnesota requiring voter ID at the polls. Here is a snapshot of the results as of Today, Oct. 21, 2012.
Though this is not a scientific poll by any stretch of the imagination, we did try to create the most recent Star Tribune Poll on this very same question, using the same demographics and questions they used.
Six of you were gracious enough to respond. Here is the breakdown.
Four of you are in favor of a constitutional amendment requiring photo ID at the polls. Two of you are opposed to the amendment. That means that 66.7 percent in favor of the amendment, 33.3 percent opposed.
Five of you are men, and only one woman responded. That’s 83.3 percent male, 16.7 percent female. Come on women, we want to know what you think!
As to the income of the respondents polled, two of you responded that you earned less than $25,000 a year. Two of you earn $50,000 to $100,000 a year and one of you earns more than $100,000 a year. That percentage breakdown is 40/40/20 respectively.
Where do you guys live? One of you is in Northwest Minnesota, two live in the Minneapolis/St. Paul Metroplex, and one of you lives in Southeast Minnesota near me. That percentage breakdown is 25/50/25. Two of you did not respond? Perhaps you live out of state?
As to your ethnicity, three of you responded that you are Caucasian, 2 of you responded that you are Black. One of you declined to answer. Interesting.
As to your age, one of you is 18-35 and four are in the 36-55 age bracket. I would assume that these are the ages of people comfortable with the Internet to fill out online polls. One of you did not respond to the question. Perhaps you are ageless? Is that you Gandalf?
Two of you have served in the military and three of you have not. One of you declined to respond. That percentage breakout is 40/60. Perhaps one of you served in the Foreign Legion? Perhaps next time I’ll include a question for Peace Corps volunteers?
Thank you for investing your time to answer my poll. I’ll leave the survey up for a while longer to see if we get any more responses. Below you’ll find a infographic showing the breakdown so far. Thanks again for participating.
