When Texas 2036 polled state voters, it showed that Texans were increasingly concerned about the future of the state, based on a few questions.

Recently, we asked you, the readers of Yorktown News-View, to take part in an unscientific poll to find out what you think.

Here are the results:

26% of Texas voters said they feel financially worse off than last year.  48% of Yorktown residents feel that they’re worse off than last year.

52% of Texas voters say that the state is worse off than this time last year. Yorktown is right in line with state numbers, also with 52%.

88% of Texans support water projects to improve both the cleanliness of drinking water, and access to water during droughts. 89% of Yorktown residents support those projects as well.

83% of Texans polled support upgrades to the state’s electrical grid and generation capacity, including weatherization, new energy technologies, and transmission improvements. 93% of Cuero residents support those upgrades.

81% of Texas voters are in favor of a broadband and communications infrastructure, which would increase access to the internet in rural and underserved areas, as well as enhance disaster response capabilities.  An overwhelming number of 96% of Yorktown residents are in favor of these, coming in at 96%.
