PREVIOUS RESEARCH PROJECTS

A recent national survey show voters are increasingly critical of the health care they get and predict it will get even worse under the new national health care law.  The Hispanic Leadership Alliance (HLA) wanted to test Texas voter’s attitudes toward the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, to determine its level of support in Texans.

 

The most recent HLA survey found that a majority of Texas voters (61.6%) want the Affordable Care Act repealed.  Hispanic voter’s support of ACA repeal is only slightly lower at 55.4% but still a majority.  Future HLA surveys will track this issue to see if public opinion changes as the country moves further into ACA implementation.

 

The survey of 437 Registered Voters was conducted April 7th and 8th, 2015 by the Hispanic Leadership Alliance Research Project.  The margin of sampling error is +/- 4.74 percentage points with a 95% confidence level.

ISSUE RANKING AMONG TEXAS VOTERS

SURVEY CONDUCTED APRIL 7th-8th, 2015

 

 

While reviewing the most recent election and looking forward to the 2016 Presidential race, many candidates and officeholders continue to highlight border security and repealing the Affordable Care Act, known at Obamacare.  These two issues continuously dominate political campaigns and legislative activities.

A recent Hispanic Leadership Alliance Research Project survey looked at Texas Voters attitudes toward these two issues, while comparing both against decreasing government spending, a traditionally strong issue in Texas.

Texas voters were generally split evenly among the three topics:  Secure the Border (35.5%), Decrease Spending (32.3%) and Repeal Obamacare (32.3%).    When accounting for ethnicity, the numbers shift and Hispanic support for Border Security drops to 29.7% while Decreased Spending jumps up to 37.4%.  Non-Hispanics see Border Security as a more important issue (41.4%) and consider it a higher priority than Decreased Spending (27%).

The survey of 437 Registered Voters was conducted April 7th and 8th, 2015 by the Hispanic Leadership Alliance Research Project.  The margin of sampling error is +/- 4.74 percentage points with a 95% confidence level.
