A majority of those participating in the nonpartisan House Public Information Services state fair poll believe publicly funded preschool should be provided for the state’s youngest learners. They also support exempting Social Security income from Minnesota’s individual income tax and think the state should offer financial assistance to help local law enforcement agencies purchase body cameras.
The annual state fair poll, conducted at the House booth, is an informal, unscientific survey of issues discussed in prior legislative sessions and may be topics of discussion in 2016.
Of the 6,338 people taking the 2015 poll, 59.7 percent support publicly funding preschool for all 4 year olds; however, 32.6 percent are against the idea and 7.6 percent had no opinion or were undecided.
