Student Assembly Polls on Constitution

A poll conducted by the Dartmouth Student Assembly—every undergraduate was invited to respond—found that 37% of students oppose the proposed constitution, while 21% favor it. 11% considered themselves undecided, and 31% marked that they either do not know enough to form an opinion, or do not care.

Of those undergraduates expressing an opinion on the proposed constitution, 63% opposed the constitution while 37% supported it.

If undergraduates were permitted to vote on the proposal, it would fail by 30 points.

Responses to the poll, which I understand are rather in line with past SA polls on alumni affairs, numbered 322.

The Student Assembly poll has, of course, been correct before. The Dartmouth reported on May 11, 2004:
In a three-day mock poll set up by the Student Assembly last week, Rodgers was the preferred candidate of the undergraduate student body, winning 54.9 percent of the student vote.
T.J. Rodgers went on to win with 55% of the alumni vote.

UPDATE: has graphics.
