New Tulchin Research Presentation on Poll Results for Blue Shield of California Foundation: Californians See Domestic Violence As a Public Health Issue

Blue Shield of California Foundation and Tulchin Research recently presented to the press and the public on the results of our research on domestic violence prevention. The PowerPoint presentation comprehensively covers our findings about Californians’ attitudes toward domestic violence . Building upon a 2012 survey, the results show that individuals across the state recognize the important connection between health care and domestic violence.

Findings reveal that Californians overwhelmingly approve of measures to train doctors and nurses to effectively identify and respond to victims of abuse. They also support a new federal policy under the Affordable Care Act that will require healthcare providers to screen for domestic violence during women’s preventive health visits.

New National Survey Results: Public Demands Anti-Corruption Measures

New National Poll Conducted by Tulchin Research and MFour Strategies for Represent.us Shows Broad Support For Reducing Corruption, Including Through Campaign Finance Reform

Numerous public and private polls have already documented a growing feeling of alienation and disenfranchisement among American voters, and the erosion of confidence in Congress. This poll attempts to understand the cause of – and potential solutions to – this growing dissatisfaction by measuring current voter attitudes toward money and corruption in politics, and testing alternative campaign funding and anti-corruption solutions.

The results are compelling.

While many national polls seeking to understand America’s deep dissatisfaction with our government show a moderate to deep divide along party and ideological lines, this poll suggests overwhelming consensus amongst Democrats, Republicans, Independents and non-affiliated voters around the issue of corruption in the American election system and the need to institute tough, meaningful reforms.

The poll suggests now may be the most opportune time in modern history to toughen the nation’s campaign finance laws and restore an electoral system that voters agree has been soured by big money and political corruption

The Represent.Us poll was conducted Nov. 12 to 17, 2013 by polling firms MFour Strategies and Tulchin Research and surveyed 1,003 likely U.S. voters. The poll was administered using an online format and adapted for voters using Apple and Android-based smartphones. The sample was controlled and weighted to reflect U.S. voter demographics.The margin of error for the overall sample was +/- 3.5 percentage points.

New California Statewide Poll Finds Strong Support for Legalizing, Regulating and Taxing Marijuana

October 21st, 2013 · Blog, Company News, Issues, News, Poll release

ACLU Poll Alternatives to Incarceration

New Tulchin Research Poll Is Part of the ACLU’s Effort to Form a Blue Ribbon Panel on Marijuana Legalization Lead by Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom

A new Tulchin Research poll finds that a solid majority of voters in California support a proposal to legalize, regulate and tax marijuana. The ACLU Thursday released results from this poll which shows ever-growing support for taxing and regulating marijuana among likely 2016 California voters across political, racial and geographic lines. The poll results make clear that voters offer strong support for legalizing marijuana when it is coupled with a comprehensive regulatory system and an ability to collect revenues to fund public services. Specifically, nearly two-thirds (65 percent) of voters support a proposal to legalize, regulate and tax marijuana in California for adults. In fact, nearly half (46 percent) of voters strongly support such a sample measure compared to less than a third of voters (27 percent) who strongly oppose it.

The proposal put to the 1,200 respondents likely to vote in November 2016 makes it clear that marijuana would still be illegal for minors and that there would be penalties for DUI. The sample measure also references the revenue that would be raised with a tax and the types of services that might be funded. When all of this is put together in a ballot measure, the poll finds strong support for legalizing, regulating and taxing marijuana across a wide range of demographic groups.

The ACLU of California announced Thursday that Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom will chair a blue ribbon panel that will study the complex legal and policy issues that must be resolved as California considers legalizing, taxing and regulating marijuana for adults. [Read more →]
