Survey shows support for Minnesota VikingsThe St. Cloud State Survey has released the latest results from their statewide survey.
The St. Cloud State Survey has released the latest results from their statewide survey.
A total of 550 randomly chosen adult Minnesotans were interviewed between October 26 and November 4 and shared their views on a variety of topics, including the Minnesota Vikings and the Northstar Commuter Rail.
Results on the Minnesota Vikings survey questions show about two thirds of Minnesotans think it is important to keep the Vikings in Minnesota. About one-third believe it is of little or no importance.
However, the importance of the team to residents tends to mirror the team’s record.
Opinions are scattered, however, with respect to a new Vikings stadium. Overall, roughly one-of-four think the present stadium is fine, one-third want a new stadium privately funded, and one-third want it funded through some combination of public and private funding.
Results of the Northstar Commuter Rail survey questions show six of 10 adult Minnesotans have not used any form of public transportation during the past year.
About 20 percent plan on using Northstar and about half think their local community would be better by having a Northstar station.
Results from surveys pertaining to views on immigration, same sex marriage, the impact of the economy, abortion, healthcare, and other topics will be released at a later date.
