Measure 86, to create state endowment for college financial aid, trailing in poll

October 16th, 2014

Voters are leaning against Measure 86, which would allow the state to borrow to endow a college scholarship fund, with 41 percent likely to vote "no" and 35 likely to vote "yes," a new poll conducted for Oregon Public Broadcasting shows. But a huge proportion, 25 percent, are still undecided, the OPB poll found.
The poll, by DHM Research, reached 516 likely Oregon voters last week. It has a margin of error of about 4 percent. It is the only publicly released poll on how voters regard Measure 86.
John Horvick of DHM said the measure, with 41 percent opposition and a lot of undecided voters, is unlikely to pass. That is because, in the absence of big money to fund an advertising blitz, undecided voters are more likely to turn into "no" voters when it comes time to fill out the ballot.
