Media Availability -- Southern Illinois Poll

Reporters, photographers and camera crews are welcome to attend an in-depth analysis of the 2011 spring Southern Illinois Poll from Southern Illinois University Carbondale’s Paul Simon Public Policy Institute. The event is at 10 a.m. Friday, March 25, in the Institute lobby.

The event features David Yepsen, Institute director, and John S. Jackson and Charles W. Leonard, both visiting professors at the public policy institute. Leonard supervises the polling.

The poll replicates parts of a public opinion survey that Jackson and other political science professors at SIUC conducted in the mid-1970s of Southern Illinois residents’ views on a variety of issues, including federal, state, and local government performance.

For more information, contact Matt Baughman, associate director, at 618/453-4009 or 618/201-0082.
