Summary of North Carolina Polling Results

August 6, 2017 by admin

Reading May 2017 poll results for North Carolina (Civitas releases new poll of North Carolina likely voters) I was struck by the contrast between voters who self identified as Democrat 45% and the self description of those polled as being Conservative..45%. Further looking at the issues, positions taken were often not those of the Democratic party, but more conservative. It looks like the Democrats are not getting their message out in terms of their beliefs.
