A 2009 poll confirms that Maryland voters believe in State support for private, nonprofit colleges and universities. In September 2009, Gonzales Research & Marketing Strategies released the results of a statewide poll of registered Maryland voters showing overwhelming support for the current system of State grants to private colleges and universities. When given the facts about funding for higher education, 69% of State voters favor the continuation of a program in Maryland that provides State funds to private, nonprofit colleges and universities.
Support for the private option for higher education transcends political parties with 62% of Democrats, 62% of Republicans, and 78% of Independent voters saying Maryland should continue its partnership with private colleges. Furthermore, support for the program comes from every region of the State.
