New poll shows majority support of Wild Olympics
A new poll released by the Wild Olympics campaign of 500 likely voters in the 6th Congressional District showed a strong support for the proposal.
Nearly two out of three voters expressed approval for the Wild Olympics plan proposed by Rep. Norm Dicks and Sen. Patty Murray. 49% not only supported the proposal but also supported it “strongly.” 20% of the district voters polled said they were undecided. This shows that only 15% of those polled within the 6th District were in opposition to the plan. The 6th District covers the Olympic Peninsula including Grays Harbor as well as Kitsap County and Tacoma.
Wild Olympics representatives say that the poll showed around 70% support from Kitsap and Pierce Counties, while the Olympic Peninsula support showed 50% support. Polling was done based on electoral votes, which includes a majority in the Puget Sound area.
The survey was conducted June 7 to 10 by the Mellman Group and Public Opinion Strategies, at the request of the Wild Olympics Coalition.
