West Virginia Chamber President Steve Roberts said, “The West Virginia Poll has long been recognized as the premier tool providing a stunningly accurate measurement and reflection on the views of our citizens. This year’s report will highlight job approvals for major state leaders and public reaction to several important issues facing our state. Additionally, it will explore the possibility that West Virginia is beginning to experience a political shift that may fundamentally change the state’s future.” {{more}}

Rex Repass, CEO of Repass & Partners, said “In more than 30 years of conducting this poll, we know that West Virginians are very insightful about issues that affect their lives. Over the years, results of the West Virginia Poll have had an impact on legislative initiatives and other issues important to state residents.”
