Nearly three-quarters of registered voters lack confidence that Illinois’ recent budget deal will reduce the state’s long-term fiscal problems. Asked to rate their anger over the state’s fiscal situation on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 meaning “extremely angry,” two-thirds of voters chose a 4 or 5. That anger may be contributing to the state’s population loss. Nearly half of the survey participants claimed they’d considered moving out of state in the last year.
Rosanna Marquez, state president of AARP Illinois, joins us Thursday evening to discuss the details of the survey.
