Study: Disability Concerns May Sway Votes


As reported in Disability Scoop on Oct. 1, a recent survey of 1,000 likely voters showed that 51 percent have a family member or close friend with a disability -- and that relationship could affect their vote in this year's presidential election. The survey did not specifically ask about preferences for the individual candidates.

Conducted by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research, the "Public Opinion on Disabilities" survey revealed that about half think the government is doing enough for people with disabilities, and the other half say more is needed. And the issue seems to be more influential for Democrats than Republicans.
