The Tower Institute is pleased to provide this research and analysis for the benefit of public policy leaders and decision makers. The purpose of the Tower Poll is not to recommend a specific course of action in public policy, but rather to provide a guidepost so decision makers can balance the goals of public policy initiatives with the public’s perceptions and expectations. Several questions were determined in collaboration with Americans for Prosperity – Texas.

THE TOWER INSTITUTE ANNOUNCES VOTER SENTIMENT SURVEY AUSTIN, TX, APRIL 18, 2007: Today the Tower Institute, a strategic analysis and public policy study group, released its annual Survey of Texas Voter Sentiment to the Appropriations Committee of Texas House of Representatives. Recipients of this release may view the detailed results at www.towerinstitute.org.

“The purpose of our survey is to transmit directly to elected officials the voting public’s expectations of Texas state governments, unfiltered, and unparsed,” stated Joe Gardner, a Tower Institute Director.

“The survey proves that Texans want limited government and lower taxes.”

The survey was conducted in collaboration with Americans for Prosperity – Texas, which provided several issues to be studied. Americans for Prosperity is a grassroots organization that educates and mobilizes citizens as advocates for limited government, free markets, the principles of entrepreneurship, and fiscal and regulatory restraint.

“We were eager to see how voters responded to the issues that taxpayer-funded lobby associations are advocating, and it was astounding to see that our tax dollars are going to support a legislative agenda that voters don’t agree with,” said Peggy Venable, AFP-Texas director. “Legislators should take notice that voters support taxpayer protections and want to end taxpayer-funded lobbying,” said Venable. “These are issues the legislature has yet to act on. Legislators should not have to face constituents back home without addressing these voter concerns.”
