Conservatives polling on OC Board of Education Race and Charter Schools




Automated polling outfit GMI is polling the June Orange County Board of Education election for conservatives.

The automated survey is short. Respondents are asked affiliation, likelihood to vote, which candidates they support, and one more question:

Which of these six issues was most important:

  1. Support Charter Schools
  2. Stop the Common Core
  3. Reduce Government Waste
  4. Improve the Quality of Education
  5. More Government Transparency
  6. Lower taxes

Given that five of the six choices are standard right-wing tropes, one can make some assumptions about who is paying for the survey.

The three board members (of five) that are up for re-election in June all lean right. Indeed, they staged a Hugh Hewitt inspired 2014 attack on the Common Core.

Bob Hammond District 1.  Serves Fountain Valley, Santa Ana, Garden Grove, Tustin, and the Tea Party

Ken Williams District 3  Serves Brea, Foothill Ranch, Irvine, Orange, Villa Park, Portola Hills, Yorba Linda, Anaheim, Lake Forest, Tustin, and Christian Education.

John Bedell. District 4. Serves Buena Park, Fullerton, La Habra, Placentia, Anaheim, and Old-School Republicans.

Wouldn’t it be great if Irvine could have a representative who supports public education?
