Vermonters divided on whether state is on right track

Posted: Updated:

Vermonters are pretty well divided on whether the state is heading in the right direction. That's according to the results of a new Channel 3 News poll.

When asked by the Castleton Polling Institute if Vermont is on the right track, 51 percent of the registered voters surveyed said yes; 43 percent say we're on the wrong track.

The picture changes when you divide the results by party. Eighty-one percent of the Democrats surveyed think Vermont is going in the right direction. Republicans see it differently; 68 percent say Vermont is on the wrong track.

The poll was conducted for WCAX by the Castleton Polling Institute.

  • Based on 653 interviews of registered voters conducted by phone from September 22 to October 2, 2014
  • Margin of error for entire sample, +/- 3.8%
  • Data are weighted by age, gender, and county to adjust for response bias
  • A likely voter model is applied to questions about voting in 2014 to adjust for over reporting the intention to vote
