Organizations Release National Poll Results Showing Voter Opposition to ATC Privatization
Washington, DC— Today, the Alliance for Aviation Across America, the League of Rural Voters, and the Air Care Alliance held a conference call with Global Strategies Group and reporters to release the results of a recent survey on privatization of our air traffic control system.
The poll, conducted by Global Strategies Group between August 8 and August 12, showed that the majority of voters oppose privatizing the air traffic control function of the FAA and turning it over to a private, non-profit entity by a nearly two-to-one margin. The sampling margin of error on the survey is +/-3.5% at the 95% confidence level.
