A new statewide poll conducted by the Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs at Virginia Commonwealth University shows the division on issues of priority among Virginians.
Issues like the economy, education, women’s reproductive rights, COVID-19 and taxes are among top concerns, but Virginians remain divided on which issues deserve the most attention.
The poll results also indicate that Virginians are strongly divided on whether the country is headed in the right direction. Sentiments for whether or not Virginia is headed in the right direction are slightly less divided and more favorable than the national outlook.
These new poll results confirm what was revealed prior to the election. (The Commonwealth Poll was the first to suggest the closeness of the gubernatorial race). Education is and appears to continue to be tops among voter concerns. Taxes and the economy are accompanying priorities with voters. The poll results indicate more concerns about issues affecting people than party affiliation.
The recent poll results also share Virginian’s approval ratings for the president.
