Dorchester Poll: Plastic bag ban suffers huge defeat

By NW Spotlight,

The forth issue in the Dorchester poll was whether Oregon should ban plastic bags which is based on the Oregon Senate Bill 536 (see Oregon Plastic bag ban – bag tax). This bill would outlaw plastic bags as a consumer choice and would tax 5-cent fro every time the consumer wished to use a paper bag.  92% of the 600 Dorchester attendees said no.   This stunning rejection in the 90% range is one of the most unpopular ideas polled in the few decades of Dorchester. Clearly, this is troubling news for bag ban-bag tax supporters.

Ban plastic bags?
92% — NO
8% — YES
