In the first year of the KnoxCorps partnership between Knox College and the Galesburg Community Foundation, an exit poll conducted Tuesday is showing strong support for social service or “community nonprofit” organizations here.

The Knox/TKS poll, conducted by Assistant Professor of Political Science Andrew Civettini’s Voting and Elections course, had 100 respondents, most of whom showed support for these organizations. Most believe that they should be funded by the private sector or the local government.
