public opinion feature

Public Sector Consultants is launching this month a new polling partnership to assess the views of likely voters on key topics in Michigan.

The quarterly poll restores a PSC tradition. The firm once regularly published the Public Opinion Monitor, which tracked public views on pressing state issues – issues that remain with us today. In one of the last Monitors, published in the summer of 1993, 56 percent of respondents chose “resolving the school finance issue” as their top priority.

It is widely expected that education and the way schools are financed will be a discussion point in this year’s election and legislative cycle.

“This partnership with Denno Research gives us the opportunity to assess public opinion on topics large and small,” says Jeff Williams, CEO of PSC. “In fact, our first set of 10 questions covered topics such as the Affordable Care Act, education, Detroit bankruptcy, energy policy, and transportation.”

“We are really excited to be working with PSC,” says Dennis Denno, president of Denno Research.  “Our company has been conducting quarterly polls of Michigan voters for seven years, and this partnership with PSC will tap into the thoughts of Michigan residents on important policy issues.”
