Results Obtained for First Public Opinion Poll on Cityhood.


Abstract.

A telephone poll commissioned by the Santa Clarita Cityhood Formation Committee indicates that incorporation is favored by a better than 2 to 1 margin among those who have an opinion. A large fraction of those polled, however, have not yet taken a side on the issue.

The poll was conducted during the last week of January and the first week of February among a random sample of 68 persons who can qualify as voters in the proposed area. The poll has a statistical margin of error of 6 percentage points.

81% of the sample indicated an awareness of the cityhood issue. When asked how they felt questioned responded as follows:

Strongly Approve - 18%

Somewhat Approve - 25%

Neutral & Don't Know - 38%

Somewhat Disapprove - 16%

Strongly Disapprove - 3%

Members of the Cityhood Steering Committee stated that the large percentage in the Neutral & Don't Know category is not surprising at this stage. This indicates that many people probably want more information and aren't really pressed to make up their minds yet.

Those who were neutral or who indicated that they supported incorporation were asked to indicate their reasons for support. This question was open-ended, requiring the respondents to state their own reasons instead of indicating agreement or disagreement with a prompted list of categories.[...]

Note: On Nov. 3, 1987, voters approved the formation of the City of Santa Clarita by a margin of 69-31 percent (14,723 to 6,597 votes).
