2018 Voter Survey on Public Land



The third biannual Public Lands Survey of 500 registered Montana voters was commissioned by the University of Montana’s Crown of the Continent and Greater Yellowstone Initiative (COCGYI) to garner better understanding of public land discussions.  This year’s survey looked at some new issues including: Wilderness Study Areas, a proposal to designate a National Monument outside of Glacier National Park, and a proposal to feature less visited public lands in the state's tourism promotion efforts.  The poll was conducted by Republican pollster Lori Weigel of Public Opinion Strategies and Democratic pollster Dave Metz of Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, Metz & Associates.
