LEE Insights: Voter sentiment & educational issues [New Orleans]

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 New Orleans 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 New Orleans looked for as it relates to education and their elected leaders. 

The poll was fielded between June 16th and June 25, 2020 and included 601 live-caller surveys, 60% of which were calls to cell phones and 40% of which were to landlines. The poll targeted likely voters who live within Orleans Parish, Louisiana. Responses were weighted to the demographics of a presidential general election electorate across age, gender, party affiliation, and race/ethnicity.
