Poll: Voters Support Funding for Skills Training

February 28, 2019

A national survey of 1,000 likely voters in the 2020 general election found that 93 percent of respondents supported increasing investment in skills and technical training. ALG, a polling firm, conducted the survey for the National Skills Coalition, a nonprofit group that backs increased federal spending on short-term postsecondary training.

Investment in skills training was the most popular of eight economic proposals included in the survey. Free tuition at four-year public colleges for anyone who wants it finished last, with 60 percent of respondents backing that proposal. Free community college fared slightly better, with support from 66 percent of respondents.
