Small business is a powerful political force in Oregon
Election Day approaches fast. Did you know:
- The 2022 Gallup Poll found 68% of Americans having a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in small business as an institution. Small business was the highest ranked institution in this year’s survey, and topped organized labor (28%), banks (27%), and big business (14%).
- Nearly nine in ten adults (89%) report a positive view of small businesses, according to Morning Consult. “These positive sentiments extend across party lines … Republicans (92% positive) and Democrats (90% positive) are united in their appreciation for small business.”
- “When it comes to determining who should represent their communities in elected office … the vast majority (59%) say they would prefer a small business owner to represent them over the CEO of a large corporation (4%), a union representative (9%) or a lawyer (6%),” according to Morning Consult.
