St. Petersburg Surveys
 
June 2012 City of St. Petersburg General Survey

Telephone survey of registered voters within the City of St Petersburg, conducted on June 18th and 19th, 2012:

In our mid-June St. Petersburg general city poll, we asked about decriminalization of marijuana and support for digital billboards. The Mayor and City Council both saw their approval ratings go down slightly. Red light cameras saw their approval go down to their lowest level to date.

Total people polled: 2764

These results have been scientifically weighted by political party, race, gender and age.
