Economy Top Issue in 2019 The Arkansas Poll

The economy remains the top issue among Arkansans, with support for anti-abortion laws and the death penalty waning, according to the 2019 The Arkansas Poll which was published (Nov. 6).

Polling also showed that most Arkansans support gun licensing, background checks for gun purchases, hiring of more border agents and construction of a border wall.

The Arkansas Poll, designed by a professor of political science at the University of Arkansas, Janine Parry, is one of the oldest polls in the nation.

The poll was conducted between October 12th and October 24th.  Issues and Answers Network, a polling firm, reportedly completed 811 interviews via phone among a random adult sample in the state.  The Arkansas Poll has an error margin of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
