Polling Vermonters about wind power  

Credit:  By WCAX News | Posted: Oct 11, 2014 | www.wcax.com ~~

BURLINGTON, Vt. – Out of 653 registered voters, half of those asked were in favor moving forward with wind power development. 41% favor a moratorium for a few years to allow for further study. Regionally, those living in northern Vermont are more likely to favor a moratorium. Republicans were also more likely to delay development at 51% of those polled compared to just 30% of Democrats.

The poll was conducted for WCAX by the Castleton Polling Institute.

Based on 653 interviews of registered voters conducted by phone from September 22 to October 2, 2014

Margin of error for entire sample, +/- 3.8%

Data are weighted by age, gender, and county to adjust for response bias

A likely voter model is applied to questions about voting in 2014 to adjust for over reporting the intention to vote
