For the first time ever, Public Opinion Polls for Oakland, NJ is taking a closer look at the results of our polls and how different groups and demographics answer our polling questions. This is not only beneficial to P.O.P. for Oakland, NJ, but also to you, the Oakland citizen, so you can see who takes our polls, what your fellow like minded residents answered to our questions, and also to see current trends in town. This data could also be useful for local campaigns to see which groups of people are voting your way, which ones are not, and which candidate might need a bit more publicity in town.
While what you see below is just a sampling, you can look at the full excel file by clicking here and then finding the file titled Summer-July 2012 Poll Data Analysis.
The way this post will work is that I have chosen 4 questions that I believe most people would find interesting. Below, you will see the number of the question, the wording of the question, and then 2 links. The first link will be responses from MALE residents (in all of the different categories), and then below that, the FEMALE residents.
Question 4: If the election for President was held today, who would you vote for (given that both Obama and Romney are their party's nominees)?
Question 5: If you were to make a prediction, who do you think will win the 2012 Presidential Election? Please note that is a prediction, not necessarily who you plan to vote for on Election Day.
Question 11: Have you noticed a change in traffic on Rt. 202 (Ramapo Valley Rd.) driving through town over the past few months?
Question 13: The Supreme Court recently ruled that the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as "Obamacare", is mostly Constitutional. If it was your decision, what action would you take with the law?
