HBO Poll: ‘Coach Pete’ Pay Too High

  • Tuesday Poll: 81 of 138 respondents (59%) said that the pay of $8M over 5 years for Boise State football coach Chris Petersen is too high in these tight economic times. 81 of 138 (38%) said it was a proper amount for someone w/Petersen’s record.
  • Jorgenson-Vick Poll: 75 of 104 respondents (72%) said state Sen. Mike Jorgenson is either being a baby (51, 49%) or boosting challenger Steve Vick’s profile (24, 23%) by fighting to keep him off the ballot. 24 of 104 respondents (23%) said Jorgenson is just following the law (12, 12%) or they wouldn’t vote for Vick because he’s supported by legislators Phil Hart and Jim Clark.
  • Volunteer Poll: 68 of 96 respondents (71%) said they spend more than 54 hours (the average amount in Idaho) doing volunteer work. 19 of 96 (20%) said they spend less than 54 hours volunteering. And 9 of 54 (9%) said they don’t volunteer at all.
  • Today’s Question: Who do you support to win the GOPrimary nomination in the Senate District 3 race — Mike Jorgenson or Steve Vick?
