TX-smallA majority of Texans oppose the legislation currently being considered by the legislature that imposes restrictions on abortion and 80 percent do not want abortion to be raised during the special session of the legislature called at the end of May by Governor Rick Perry.


Of registered voters, 63 percent say the state has enough restrictions on abortion and 71 percent thinking that the Governor and legislature should be more focused on the economy and jobs. A majority opposes the sort of legislation passed by the state Senate and being considered by the state House during this legislative Special Session, believing that it imposes further restrictions on abortion. Overall, only 34 percent trust the Governor and the legislature to make decisions about women's healthcare.


The following memo is based on a statewide survey of 601 registered voters in Texas, conducted June 17 – 19, 2013. These data are subject to a margin of error of +/- 4.0 percentage points at a 95 percent confidence level. The survey is representative of the Texas electorate. Among those surveyed, 49 percent self-identify as Republicans and 37 percent identify as Democrats; ideologically, 46 percent say they are conservative, 33 percent identify as moderates, and 15 percent are liberal.


On behalf of the University of Southern California Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences and the Los Angeles Times, Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research, in conjunction with American Viewpoint, conducted a new survey among 1,500 registered California voters. The latest survey shows: 


  • Voters see improvement in California economy
  • Voters choose quality over affordability at Calif. public universities
  • Survey shows growing support for online education in California
  • Voters split on transgender proposal
  • Californians oppose more fracking — but potential economic benefits open the door for support
  • Californians uneasy about fracking's safety, lack of oversight
  • Californians would go further than Gov. Brown to cut prison crowding
  • Californians favor reducing sentences for nonviolent offenders
  • Poll shows Californians favor legalizing same-sex marriage
  • Support for legalizing same-sex marriage in California continues to grow


mandelaimage2On this day in 1994, South Africa’s first democratically-elected Parliament chose Nelson Mandela to be the country’s first president in the post-apartheid era. In his inaugural address, Mandela spoke of building a “society in which all South Africans, both black and white, will be able to walk tall, without any fear in their hearts, assured of their inalienable right to human dignity - a rainbow nation at peace with itself and the world.” We at GQR are proud to have been a part of that campaign.

illinoisgunlawsFBLawmaker positions could impact voter support


Voters in Illinois are ready for changes to gun laws, and there is a large bloc who is more likely to support a candidate who votes for stronger laws. They are not by any means anti-gun, but they strongly favor laws that will help prevent guns falling into the wrong hands and protect their families.


While opposed to conceal and carry generally, if it must happen, voters favor a broad range of limits on who can carry weapons where. They don’t stop there. There is also near universal support for background checks on all gun sales, and strong support for banning military-style assault weapons and limiting ammunition magazines.


Voters do not buy the NRA’s arguments that common-sense gun laws are a slippery slope towards infringing on 2nd Amendment rights and confiscating guns. They believe there is a moderate, middle-ground approach, and are looking for lawmakers who fill that space.


The below are key findings and recommendations from a survey of 600 registered voters in Illinois, with an additional 300 oversample of Will and DuPage counties. A phone survey was conducted from March 27 through April 2, 2013. Margin of error is +/- 4 percent for the total electorate and +/- 5 percent for Will and DuPage counties (combined).
