weekly online poll

The Pella Chronicle posts an online poll on our website, pellachronicle.com. Each week we feature a different question. Answers from the online poll will be featured in the following week's opinion page in the Chronicle. Each week's question will also be featured in the Chronicle for those who would like to call in their answer instead of filling out the online poll. To call in your answer to the weekly poll, dial 641-628-3882. All polling answers for that week will stop being collected at 4 p.m. the Monday before publication.

Last week's question was, “Recently, conversation has spun around President Donald Trump's tweet saying he has the 'absolute right' to pardon himself. As legal officials determine whether he could pardon himself, do you think the president should be able to do so?”

Answers included, “Yes,” “No” and “I have no idea.” 

There were three who voted, “Yes,” and 27 who voted, “No.” No one voted, “I have no idea.”

This week's question is, “With the recent deaths of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain, discussion about suicide, prevention and mental health have risen in national news coverage. Do you think suicide should be considered a public health crisis?”

–Yes

–No
