A scientific survey performed by a 3rd Party Polling shows that Rep. Dave Lifferth has very high approval ratings from Republicans in House District 2. The 3rd party survey was not requested by Rep. Lifferth and he was not made aware of the phone survey until after it had been completed. The phone survey was conducted among registered Republicans in Saratoga Springs and Eagle Mountain.
The results also show that Rep. Dave Lifferth has higher approval ratings than other State Legislators and State Senators.
According to the survey only 12% of survey respondents disapprove of the job that Rep. Dave Lifferth has done while in office. This is compared with a 26% disapproval rating for the state wide average of State Legislators or 24% disapproval for State Senators. The 12% disapproval is compared to an 88% approval of Rep Dave Lifferth.
In another survey question of re-electability, only 7% of Republicans in Saratoga Springs and Eagle Mountain would vote for another candidate. Contrast that 7% with 93% that would vote to re-elect Rep. Lifferth and would not vote for someone else.
Lifferth was made aware of the survey results during the candidate filing period, but chose not to make the results public so that other Republicans were not discouraged from filing to run against him.
