The people's priorities
To start, a few words of caution.
This is an opinion poll: it offers a wide-angle snapshot, not the precision of a microscope.
Further, we reminded those taking part that Holyrood may not have the time or the money to do everything at once.
We asked, therefore, for priorities.
But some people, perhaps many people, might still be inclined, in effect, to tick "all of the above" when asked to rank priorities.
Certainly, it would appear that the focus is still upon the services which can be funded by public spending.
For example, two policies ostensibly designed to help business - regional development banks and reduced taxation - were way down the poll.
But, still, there are some intriguing findings.
Let us consider firstly the issue of policing - an issue driven by two elements: recruitment and police boards.
The SNP, supported by the Tories, increased police numbers by 1,000.
The idea of maintaining that number ranks second in the poll.
Meanwhile the notion of combining the eight separate forces into a single national force comes second bottom.
The Liberal Democrats have opposed a single force and will undoubtedly take comfort from that.
Equally, it may now be incumbent upon those who back reform - which they believe will save money - to express their views in the context of sustaining front-line policing.
Labour will be pleased that one of their policies - halving waiting times to see a cancer specialist - has come top of the poll.
To be fair, other parties also have offers on waiting times and waiting lists.
But glance a little further down the poll.
The idea of spending more on the health service falls outside the top 10, at number 12.
Why? Surely that runs contrary to other findings.
No - because of the caveat.
Our pollsters asked if people would prioritise increased spending on the health service "even if means cuts in spending on other things."
You may say that is unfairly loading the question.
To the contrary, I would argue that, within a fixed budget as Scotland has, it is fair to confront voters with the fact that more money for Peter means a bit less for Paul.
It would seem plausible to infer that the very mention of cuts in any form taints an issue for people in Scotland - even when the remainder features the commonly popular NHS.
Folk don't like talk of cuts. They are still not resiled to cuts - or, perhaps, to making the choices which may be demanded of our public sector when the cuts in-train start to bite.
Again, that is entirely understandable, given the scale of the challenge.
Folk are still struggling to find options that may be more palatable, that may involve less pain for fewer people.
Look now at the bottom of the poll.
Very few accord priority to the Conservative policy of allowing 14-year-olds to leave school to train for a trade.
It would seem, at the very least, that they have some way to go before they can begin to convince the voters that this is a policy worth pursuing.
Look too at the issue of a referendum on independence.
That appears well down the list, at number 22.
The SNP's opponents will undoubtedly say that is the standing view of the people of Scotland.
Perhaps, though, it reflects the focus of these elections in particular: against the background of economic stringency.
It may also partly reflect the focus of the SNP's own campaign which has been to place their independence ambition in the broader context of fiscal powers to remedy the economy while majoring on immediate pressing concerns such as growth.
Look too at the council tax. Various offers to freeze it or cut it for pensioners are all ranked in the top 10.
But the notion of replacing it with a Local Income Tax is further down, at 21.
Again, that may reflect the desire of voters to concentrate upon their immediate worries while relegating wider reform.
Also, the parties advocating this change - the SNP and LibDems - have said that it will have to await the further devolution of tax powers which means, in effect, the parliament after next.
In all, fascinating.
