New polling in advance of NC’s WORTH IT public forums finds strong support for public investments from voters across North Carolina.
Throughout October, Together NC and our partners will host a series of public forums entitled “North Carolina’s Worth It” to discuss the impacts of funding decisions both statewide and in local communities. In advance of these events, we partnered with Public Policy Polling to survey residents on a number of key issues in several communities where the forums will be held, as well as a separate statewide poll of voters across North Carolina.
The polls found broad disapproval among NC voters toward massive education cuts, eliminating the personal and corporate income tax, and giving large tax breaks to corporations. In addition, a majority of voters said they supported regularly reviewing, prioritizing, and eliminating tax exemptions and deductions to ensure accountability, as well as maintaining North Carolina’s Earned Income Tax Credit.
