Commentary
Among women respondents residing in four larger (urban-suburban) cities in British Columbia John Horgan and BC New Democrats and Justin Trudeau and Federal Liberal Party are most popular.
Kinder Morgan’s defeat on Burnaby Mountain has resonated with BC women in this poll who appear to strongly oppose it.
The conversation surrounding sexual assaults and abuse has hit a major nerve with BC sufficient to propel the issue ahead of budgets and economic policy.
There is significant majority support for a national gun registry. The number of women who know someone affected by sexual assault and other abuse is in a word staggering. The lid is off the box of secrets. Anecdote suggests women have had enough. Those who are less inclined to worry, are not out spoken.
Confidence in BC’s justice system as this relates to matters pertaining to sexual assault and other is disturbingly low. Anecdote suggests women want justice but are desperately afraid of “having their name splashed everywhere.”
An RSR ROBBINS random sample poll of 500 BC Women conducted December 7 to December 16, 2014. This poll features a Margin of Error of 4.38%, 19/20 @ 95 confidence (based on the population of women in British Columbia cities of Greater Victoria, Vancouver City, Burnaby City and Surrey City and than weighted to reflect number of women who voted in the most recent federal and provincial elections. (averaged)).
This RSR ROBBINS poll has a target strategic calling environment of women of voting age. These respondents reside in Greater Victoria, Vancouver, Burnaby, and Surrey British Columbia the most populated cities in the province. Most popular is John Horgan and New Democratic Party of British Columbia at (80%) above random. Number 2 is Justin Trudeau and Federal Liberal Party of Canada at (70%) above random. Third most popular is Tom Mulcair and New Democratic Party of Canada at (40%) above random. Fourth is Christy Clark and BC Liberal Party at (15%) above random, then Stephen Harper at (5%) above random. The New Democratic brand averages (60%) above random, while the Liberal brand averages (42.5%) above random. The Conservative brand averages below random. Question 3 also presents (20%) at random with 5 response options one of them the response choice Undecided. Two of the four remaining response choices are opposed to the pipeline either directly or by inference, while two are pro pipeline, directly or by inference. The outcomes opposed to the pipeline total (63%) or (213%) above random. Averaged, the outcomes opposed equal (31.5%) or (57.5%) above random. The remaining two response choices pro pipeline are (60%) above random and averaged at (16%) this represents a less than random average. The two statements directly reflecting respondent’s position as opposed or pro pipeline including: “Whatever the reason, I don’t want the pipeline” (opposed) and “I am pro pipeline” (pro) are at par with random (opposed) and below random (pro). Question 4 is ground breaking in terms of its outcome in our opinion, with a social issue not often discussed until recently easily trumping a response option about the economy. Again 5 response choices are offered to respondents including the response choice Undecided. One response choice: “Putting an end to gender inequality, sexual abuse and assault” attracts (210%) above random when random (20 is 100%). “The Conservative government’s budget and economic policies are at par with random, while “Increasing the RCMP’s budget” and “Making Canada an oil and resource superpower” are also below random. In question 5 outcomes are derived from 3 response choices including Undecided making random (33.33%). This produces support for a “national gun registry” that is (86%) above random and opposition to the registry below random. In question 6 the response option “Yes” to ‘anyone close to you been sexually assaulted….” is (86%) above random, while in question 7 “No” |to properly and sensitively deal with complaints of sexual assault? – is 140% above random with random or 100% = 33.33%.
