On December 5, 2017, the Lindholm Company Blog, released the results of a poll:
The elected auditor is supported by a wide margin. However, voter opinions on non-money measures typically are less firm than on money measures. The dramatic movement of the housekeeping charter amendment at the recently completed election is proof of that. At 60% it’s level of support is not quite enough to be guaranteed victory against a concerted opposition campaign. Supporters would like to have around 70%.
QUESTION: Would you vote yes or no on: Shall the City of Eugene Charter be amended to establish office of elected City Auditor to independently audit city operations and activities? IF YES/NO: Is that strongly or somewhat? IF DON’T KNOW: Which way do you lean?
METHODOLOGY: 200 live telephone interviews of likely City of Eugene 2018 General Election voters conducted September 11–12, 2017. Margin of error at the sample median is plus or minus 7%.
