This week in government waste

OCPA recently commissioned SoonerPoll, a highly respected survey firm used by the Tulsa World and others, to conduct a statewide survey of 587 likely Oklahoma voters. The survey was conducted July 25 through August 11, 2011. The margin of error is ± 4.04 percent. Here’s one of the questions:

“Do you think that Oklahoma’s state government wastes a lot of money we pay in taxes, wastes some of it, or doesn’t waste very much of it?”

Wastes a lot … 51%
Wastes some … 36%
Doesn’t waste very much … 8%
Neutral/No opinion … 2%
Don’t know/Refused … 3%
