LEE Insights: Voter sentiment & educational issues [Dallas-Fort Worth]

The intersections of community sentiment & voting have sweeping implications on educational equity every election season. Reliable, community-based polling is vital.

Leadership for Educational Equity (LEE) recently conducted a poll in the Dallas Forth-Worth area to gauge voter sentiment on a range of educational issues. LEE undertook this project in order to understand more about which qualities the voters in Dallas Fort-Worth looked for as it relates to education and their elected leaders. 

The poll was fielded between August 17 and August 24, 2020 and included 876 live-caller surveys, 66% of which were calls to cell phones and 34% of which were to landlines. The poll targeted likely voters who live in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Responses were weighted to the demographics of a presidential general election electorate across age, gender, party affiliation, and race/ethnicity.
