This past week I conducted another unscientific, presidential preference survey. This time it was of residents in the Desert Tri-State area of Arizona, California and Nevada.
Not surprising, the results mirrored the results in the survey the week before of readers of From The Cornfield, Kernels From The Cornfield and CNN’s iReport. In both surveys, participants overwhelmingly leaned Republican.
Here in the Desert, the median age is 55 years old. Older Americans tend to be more conservative and to vote. This area also holds as a bedrock of American society the Second Amendment.
Here are the results:
Party Preference –
79% Republican 7% Democratic
Democratic Nominee –
Hillary Clinton 50% Other 50% (Extrapolated)
Libertarian Nominee –
Marc Feldman 33% (Need more info) Other 67% (Extrapolated)
Republican Nominee –
1/2 tie Donald Trump 21%, John Kasich 21%
3/4/5 tie Jeb Bush 14%, Dr. Ben Carson 14%, Other 14%
6/7 Scott Walker 7%, Other 7%
One of the others had a write-in candidate of Ronald Reagan – Stan did you vote in the Desert Poll?
From the Desert with feet planted in the Cornfield, there you have the latest survey from Cornfield to Desert Polls.
This weekend following Thursday’s first presidential debate among Republican candidates, I plan to survey who you thought were winners and losers in both the debate and the earlier forum among the seven who don’t make it on to the debate stage.
