Just five weeks before the globally first vote about the introduction of an Unconditional Basic Income (UBI) is going to happen in Switzerland, the country experiences a big surprise: Over all, around 40% stated they would vote "Yes". The polling data has been collected and assessed by a cooperation of leading Swiss newspapers. Traditionally, the polling results of citizen's initiatives like UBI will decline in the following few weeks. But the question, wether to introduce a UBI on national level might be an exception after all.
When comparing the polling data from the beginning of 2016 and the newly published data one has to state: Citizens acceptance of the UBI concept has almost doubled. Further the acceptance of UBI in the french speaking part of Switzerland already finds a majority.
For sure, the last few weeks of this campaign will be thrillingly interesting. It will be a race full of suspense followed by a powerful get-out-the-vote phase.
