Wason Poll: Virginia Proposed Redistricting Amendment Has Strong Support, 48%-28%
The Wason Center for Public Policy at Christopher Newport University released a poll Thursday on the proposed redistricting amendment that appears on the 2020 ballot.
Proposed state constitutional amendment on redistricting:
The Wason Center noted, “Virginia voters appear poised to pass the state constitutional amendment that would change how General Assembly and Congressional districts are drawn, with support at 48% and opposition at 28% (24% are undecided).
“Support is strong among Democratic voters, Black voters, and college-educated voters.
“Republican voters oppose the amendment and independents are largely split.
“ ‘Considering that the Democratic Party of Virginia opposes this amendment, there seems to be a real disconnect with voters at the grassroots about reforming the way legislative districts are drawn,’ said Wason Center Research Director Rebecca Bromley-Trujillo.”
The Wason Center interviewed 796 registered Virginia voters on cell phone and landline, September 9-21. The margin of error for the whole survey is +/-3.9%. The full report is attached.
