Poll of 869 Nevada Likely Voters

Conducted April 2-12, 2024

Rasmussen Reports and NumbersUSA

How would you rate the job Joe Biden has been doing as President… do you strongly approve, somewhat approve, somewhat disapprove, or strongly disapprove of the job he’s been doing?



If the 2024 candidates for president were Joe Biden, Donald Trump and Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who would you vote for?



Do you support or oppose the federal government’s goal of protecting 30 percent of America’s land and waters from development by the year 2030?



Federal data show that Nevada has the highest rate of new development taking over natural habitat and farmland. Does Nevada still have enough habitat and farmland to continue that rate of rural loss, or should it slow down the loss dramatically, or try to stop the losses?



Which do you agree with more:  That it is unethical to pave over and build on good cropland or that the need for more housing is a legitimate reason to eliminate cropland?



Thinking about water, Nevada has had the No. 1 fastest population growth since the 1980s.  How concerned are you that Nevada’s government will be able to ensure adequate water supplies for the expanding population?



Nevada is the nation’s driest state. Cities and towns compete with agriculture for water. Should some water currently used to irrigate farmland be diverted to support additional human population growth in Nevada?



Which is closer to your view, that a growing population should be supported by drawing more heavily on Nevada’s aquifers,  or that you worry that the state’s aquifers are already being over-pumped and depleted?



Which should have priority for the remaining water in Nevada’s rivers – should the priority be the state’s  agriculture, its urban populations, or the fish and wildlife that depend on the river habitats?



A new study has concluded that Nevada’s fast population growth has been responsible for 83% of the habitat and farmland loss. Would continuing this level of population growth into the future make Nevada  better, worse or not much different?



The population of Nevada has more than tripled the last four decades. Would you prefer that the state’s  population continue to grow rapidly, that it grow much more slowly, that it stay about the same size, or that it become smaller? 



A major source of Nevada’s population growth is people moving in from other states, especially  California. Should local and state governments in Nevada make it more difficult for people to move to Nevada from other states by restricting development?



Another major source of Nevada’s population growth is immigration from other countries.  Should the federal government reduce annual immigration to slow down Nevada’s population growth, keep immigration and population growth at the current level, or increase annual immigration and population growth?



One way for Nevada communities to handle continued population growth without losing as much open space, natural habitat, and farmland is to change zoning and other regulations to funnel more current and future residents into apartments and condo buildings instead of single-family houses with yards. Do you strongly favor that change, somewhat favor it, somewhat oppose it or strongly oppose it?



Building subdivisions to accommodate new population growth each year imposes economic costs on the existing residents of municipalities.  Do you favor paying higher property taxes to accommodate new residents in your community?



One potential way of controlling new growth is by limiting the number of new hook-ups to sewage lines and wastewater treatment plants.  Do you favor using this as a tool to manage or control growth?



In trying to reduce  population growth from  illegal immigration, should the government mandate that all employers use the federal electronic E-Verify system to help ensure that they hire only legal workers for U.S. jobs?



Do you live in a major city, the suburbs, a small city, a town or a rural area?



Where would you prefer to live?



How long have you lived in Nevada?
