Hucks Poll: 2011 Legislature Earns ‘F’

  • 2011 Legislature Grade: Overwhelmingly, Hucks Nation awarded the radical 2011 Idaho Legislature either a D or an F (almost 85%). 120 of 176 respondents (68.18%) voted that this year's legislators deserve an F for their work. Another 27 (15.34%) gave them a D. Only 13% gave them an A (13 of 175, 7.39%) or a B (10, 5.68%). There was little middle ground between supporters and detractors of this year's legislators, as only 6 (3.41%) awarded C's.
  • Thursday Poll: If nonpartisan elected officials, like your mayor, council member, or school trustee, are forced to reveal their political preference as a result of the Idaho Republican Party pushing to close primaries, 71 of 113 respondents (62.83%) said they don't want to know their party affiliation. 41 of 113 respondents (36.28%) said they would like to know their nonpartisan officials party preference.
  • Today's Poll: Which piece of public art in Coeur d'Alene is your favorite -- City Park wood sculptures, Fallen Heroes Plaza, Feathers, bicyclist "Kate" (Riverstone Park), Midtown bike racks, Mudgy & Millie, and "Take Time" ponderosa tree?
