Poll Shows Support For SD Sales Tax Increase



Bookmark and Share

A poll conducted earlier this month across South Dakota shows support for a proposal to add a penny to the state sales tax to fund public schools and Medicaid.

Nielson Brothers Polling conducted the survey between Aug. 29 and Sept. 6. Officials with the company say 43.7 percent of those polled plan to vote for Initiated Measure 15, while 31.7 percent plan to vote against it. They say 24.6 percent of voters polled are undecided on the issue.

NBP broke the results of their poll on Initiated Measure 15 down in the political party. Republicans polled are evenly split on the measure. A little more than 50 percent of Democrats support Initiated Measure 15, with 25.5 percent against it. More than 49 percent of independent voters polled support the measure, while 28.2 percent are opposed.

Polling officials say about a quarter of each political party polled remains undecided on Initiated Measure 15.

NBP officials say 493 people responded to their survey on Initiated Measure 15. The margin of error is 4.41.

Friday, NBP released results of a poll conducted during the same time period on the U.S. House and Public Utilities Commission races.
