What Does Holliston Think About 2016?

by Eric Niermeyer

     To say the least, 2016 is a unqiue election year. It seems clear that a profound realignment of American politics is taking place, egged on by the two most unpopular major party candidates in living memory, one of whom has never held elected office. This realignment is especially prominent in suburban areas, even suburban areas in otherwise 'uncompetitive' states like Massachusetts.

     It is also probably not an exaggeration to say that 2016 is the most heavily polled election cycle ever, with outlets both big and small adding to a vast pool of data from across the country. This week, we would like to do our part by introducing a breif but comprehensive online survey that will help us to see where Holliston stands on issues at both the national and state level. As a longtime town resident and Political Communication student, I think the results will be fascinating.

     The survey can be accessed by following the link at the bottom of this post and will be offered until September 4th. Results and analysis of the survey will be published after it is concluded. Only complete responses will be counted. The survey is anonymous, and you will not be asked for any personal information besides age and gender. Regardless of your political affiliation, we invite you to take a few minutes out of your day to participate.
