With Election Day less than two weeks away, a pair of recent statewide polls shows strong voter support for pre-k in Pennsylvania …
- 63 percent of Pennsylvania voters cite pre-k as either a “top priority” or “high priority” on their list of issues, according to a survey of 800 registered voters conducted last month by Terry Madonna Opinion Research.
- 58 percent of voters said “improving access to high-quality pre-k programs” should be a priority for the governor in 2015, according to a survey of 700 registered voters conducted this month by Susquehanna Polling and Research.
These latest polls are consistent with a previously released Lake/Bellwether survey, which found 58 percent of likely voters consider pre-k to be a top priority. That poll found particularly solid support for pre-k investments among two important groups of voters: senior citizens and those who were undecided in the race for governor.
One thing is clear as Nov. 4 draws near: Pennsylvania voters want their elected state leaders to prioritize expanding access to high-quality pre-k for every 3- and 4-year-old in the commonwealth.
