Strong Support for Question 4,MarylandDREAM Act
The campaign to defend the Maryland DREAM Act, Educating Maryland Kids, today released a new poll that found significant majority support for Question 4, the ballot referendum on the Maryland DREAM Act.
Sixty percent of likely voters statewide polled affirmed their support for the Maryland DREAM Act, which would ensure that all students who graduated fromMarylandhigh schools and whose families payMarylandtaxes can pay in-state tuition atMarylandcolleges and universities, regardless of immigration status. Another 14% were undecided, with only 26% opposed to the law. Three-fifths of white voters and three-fourths of African Americans voters support Question 4.
“We are in a strong position going into the last stretch of the campaign,” said Travis Tazelaar, campaign manager for Educating Maryland Kids. “These high levels of support demonstrate that when voters understand what this law is about, and that it’s a simple matter of fairness, they know voting ‘for’ Question 4 on November 6 is good for both our state and our students.”
