Presidential Election Might be Top Ag Issue in 2016

Our latest ZimmPoll asked the question, “What do you expect to be the top ag issue of 2016?”

We have been discussing the 2016 presidential elections for nearly a year already and it will only increase. When it comes to agriculture it should be one of the most talked about issues. So, I am not surprised to see it top our poll. We also had many chime in with milk prices, climate change and immigration. All important agricultural issues impacting our ag community.

Here are the poll results:

  • Trade – 13%
  • WOTUS- 0%
  • GMO labeling – 27%
  • Presidential election – 40%
  • Biofuel expansion – 0%
  • Other – 20%
