Poll Finds Nevada Voters Support School-Choice Programs

According to an April poll, a large number of Nevada voters support school-choice programs. The poll, conducted by Nevada Independent/Mellman, found that 70 percent of voters support a proposal for a special-needs Education Savings Account and 59 percent support expanding the funding for the current tax-credit program.

The Nevada state legislature failed to fund the existing ESAs last year, but the poll found that a plurality of voters support the program itself, 49 percent for and 38 percent against. Hispanics emerged as the group with the largest overall support of ESAs, with 67 percent in favor, and Republicans the most supportive party, 58 percent in favor and 29 percent opposed.
