This year’s survey is a follow up to Loop 21′s survey undertaken in 2010, which yielded a number of interesting results, including:
Roughly 9 out of 10 respondents favored job creation policies over deficit reduction.
Over two‐thirds of respondents favored reducing taxes for businesses, which would likely increase the budget deficit, in order to stimulate job growth.
