Emerson College released a poll last week that showed an overwhelming number of Connecticut voters oppose the Common Core State Standards.

They first asked if they were familiar with Common Core for Connecticut schools.  56.9% said yes, 23.5% said no, and 19.6 said they don’t know.  How do you not know if you are aware of something or not?  Strange.

The second question they asked “do you support or opposed Common Core?” No spin.

61.9% they were opposed, 20.5% were in support and 16.7% said they didn’t know.

The poll was conducted from Friday night, November 13 through Monday, November 16. The poll had an overall sample of 623 registered voters with a +/-3.9%, and a 95% confidence level.
