Morningside College’s Colonel Bud Day Center for Civic Engagement has released results of its first “Morningside Poll”.

Dr. Valerie Hennings and some of her students tabulated the phone poll results on public policy issues and the performance of Iowa’s legislative and executive branches of government.

Hennings says some issues surveyed showed a partisan response:

OC……..of more border security. ;14 2X

Morningside Senior Cody Hankerson worked on the poll and says Iowans surveyed had many responses to what they felt was the most important problem facing the state:

OC…………health care at 9 per cent. :15

Sophomore Kailyn Robert dealt with firearms questions:

OC……..should be made more strict. ;25

Robert says working on the poll has inspired her to do more in the field:

OC…a great opportunity. :13

Research Now SSI conducted the poll from May 2nd through 12th with computer-assisted telephone interviews of 994 Iowa adults.

Detailed poll results are available online at the Morningside College website
