Poll: Independent Women Voters Rank Education ‘Extremely Important’

Independent women voters in nine swing states view education as “extremely important,” according to a new poll conducted by Hart Research and North Star Opinion. They rank education as a top issue right behind jobs and the economy.

The poll was conducted in Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, New Mexico, Nevada, Colorado, Ohio, Wisconsin and Pennsylania. In each state, the sample size was small, but overall 1,839 voters were polled. The poll will be released later today. (h/t Politico)
