Raleigh, N.C. – Likely voters in North Carolina are overwhelmingly in favor of several public policy proposals regarding education, the environment, and working families, according to an OnPoint Polling and Research survey conducted February 8. The survey was commissioned by AARP North Carolina, the NC Academy of Trial Lawyers, the Conservation Council of NC, Equality NC, the Planned Parenthood Action Fund of Central NC, and the North Carolina AFL-CIO.
87% of likely Tar Heel voters favor requiring chemical plants to publicize lists of the dangerous products they contain.
69% support giving counties the authority to charge impact fees on developers to help pay for new school construction.
64% support a children’s health insurance program to help cover uninsured children.
64% want the state income tax deduction for people who save money through the North Carolina college savings plan to be made permanent.
62% of likely voters support requiring hog farmers to use new technology to replace hog lagoons.
61% of North Carolina voters favor an annual cost-of-living adjustment for the minimum wage.
61% favor a plan to provide health insurance for all North Carolinians where the costs are shared by all parties.
These are not partisan issues, either. Five of the seven issues have majority support from both Democrats and Republicans, and all of them have significant support across party lines.
