Filibuster Session #3, on Wednesday, Feb. 17, will offer an opportunity to discuss the survey with two of the researchers who helped design and roll out the relaunched Idaho Public Policy Survey: Greg Hill, chair of the Department of Public Policy and Administration and Justin Vaughn, associate professor of political science. Jaclyn Kettler, also of the political science department, will moderate the discussion.
The poll, commissioned by SPS Dean Corey Cook and conducted by Boise polling and political strategy firm GS Strategy Group, asked 1,000 Idaho adults about perennial public policy issues that matter to Idahoans, and that help researchers answer questions about priorities, policy preferences and demographic and electoral trends.
