Voters Weigh In On Marsy’s Law, President Trump And Government Function In KELOLAND/Argus Leader 2018 Primary Poll


On June 5, South Dakota voters will decide if they want to make changes to a constitutional amendment.  

In 2016, voters approved a crime victim’s rights amendment known as Marsy’s Law.  Now, voters are being asked to consider making changes. According to KELOLAND/Argus Leader 2018 Primary Poll, most voters would say ‘yes’ to the request.  

Between May 21 and May 23, Mason-Dixon researchers asked 625 registered Republican voters in the state a number of questions about local races and issues on the primary ballot.  

When asked if they approve of narrowing the definition of “victim” and the other changes, 47 percent of those asked said yes, 29 percent said no and 24 percent were undecided.  

In addition to South Dakota issues, we asked voters about national politics.  Review the results on President Donald Trump’s name recognition and how voters feel about how the government functions.  

The margin of error for the poll is no more than plus or minus 4.5 percentage points.  According to Mason-Dixon, this means that there is a 95 percent probability that the “true” figure would fall within that range if all voters were surveyed.  The margin for error is higher for any subgroup, such as gender or age grouping.
