Good Early-Childhood Policy Is Popular with Oklahoma Voters

A scientific telephone survey of 1,000 likely voters registered in Oklahoma was conducted February 25 through March 8, 2010 by SoonerPoll, the same firm that conducts the “Oklahoma Poll” for the Tulsa World. The poll, which was commissioned by OCPA, has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points. The surveyor asked this question:

“Now thinking about early-childhood policy in Oklahoma, assuming the state government had a limited amount of money, which of the following do you believe should take precedence?”

  • Increasing daycare subsidies for families when professional childcare is used for their young child(ren) ... 25 percent
  • Redirecting a portion of the daycare subsidies toward a tax break for families in which one parent stays home with young child(ren) ... 61 percent
  • Don’t Know/Refused ... 14 percent
