Doyle Poll Results

Every year during Town Meeting, Senator Doyle releases a survey/poll to get the pulse of how Vermonters stand on current issues in the news and at the Statehouse.  This is not a scientific poll, but it’s helpful to see what the general opinion is of those in our community.  Below are the results for Wards 1, 2, and 3 along with Statewide. (NS means not sure)
