Survey says: Lottery, tax, Hillary

Posted By on Wed, Mar 12, 2008 at 2:48 PM

Here's that UCA public opinion poll by Opinion Research Associates of Little Rock to supplement a class UCA President Lu Hardin is teaching.

Survey says Arkansans:

Favor (64-29) a state lottery.

Favor (66-24) a severance tax on natural gas, with proceeds to roads and higher education.

Think Gov. Mike Beebe is one heckuva guy (82 percent approval rating).

Heavily prefer (51-36) Hillary Clinton for president over John McCain.

Heavily prefer (43-27) John McCain for president over Barack Obama.

Are generally favorable on statewide politicians: Sen. Mark Pryor (72); Mike Huckabee (65); Sen. Blanche Lincoln (60).

Here are the details.
