Washington Voters on Wild Salmon and Snake River Dams

March 28, 2018

Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, Metz & Associates (FM3) recently completed a survey of likely voters in Washington to assess their views of the state's salmon and the dams along the lower Snake River. The study found that Washington voters view preserving wild salmon as highly important; in fact, they prioritize it over preserving dams on the lower Snake River, and a majority supports a proposal to remove the dams. As voters learn more about the issue, support increases further.
