Rhode Island State Survey, February 2010

Rhode Island voters have minimal confidence that elected state leaders will make decisions to put the state on the right track, according to a recent public opinion survey done at Brown University. The state’s economy is “not so good” or “poor” by 94 percent of respondents; 93 percent described the national economy in the same terms. The survey of 605 registered Rhode Island voters was conducted Feb. 9–12, 2010.
