Within the Civiqs survey, for example, 14% mentioned they had been nonetheless not sure about what they thought.

However let’s additionally dig into the demographics within the Civiqs cross tabs.

Core members of the Democratic base love the concept, with assist from 88% of Black respondents and 80% of Latino respondents.
