March 2020 - Tell us your opinion of these March 3, 2020 Marin ballot measures!
The “Marin Ballot Measure Opinion Poll” had approximately 1,500 unique hits and was taken by 248 people. Though this is a small statistical sampling, the results showed negative sentiment on increasing taxes. This represents the continuation of a phenomenon called “tax exhaustion,” on the part of the general public.
There were a range of responses. Measure I, the SMART Train tax extension, showed the most negative response, whereas, Measure C, the Marin Wildfire Prevention tax is a much closer race, though the outcome was still negative. The only non-tax issue polled, Measure D, the San Geronimo Golf Course decision, is running neck and neck. Measure I, for the SMART train tax, had the most decisive negative results.
