Congressman Tim Huelskamp reported poll results today from his monthly telephone town he recently conducted in the Big First district. During these live town hall events, Congressman Huelskamp asks the listeners to participate in poll questions. Below are unscientific results from the February 26, 2013 poll questions asked during the telephone town hall.
Similar to results in early 2012, nearly four out of five constituents approved of Tim Huelskamp’s work in Congress. Last week’s poll also found that 63% of constituents supported keeping the sequester cuts and only 37% disagreed. And, 95% of respondents said they preferred a government with lower taxes and fewer government programs than one with higher taxes and more government programs.
Congressman Huelskamp released this statement about the telephone town hall poll results:
“These strong approval ratings indicate that Kansans strongly support my efforts in Congress,”said Congressman Tim Huelskamp. “They don’t trust Washington insiders and bureaucrats to solve things, and they want a smaller, more efficient federal government. They know—and I stand with them—that the future of our nation lies with the creativity and resourcefulness of the American people, not the government.”
“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to talk directly to constituents of the Big First during these telephone town halls. I was sent to Washington to serve their interests and my voting card belongs to them.”
