Poll: 58 Percent of NC Voters Support Amendment One, 34 Percent Are Uninformed

Fifty-eight percent of likely voters in North Carolina said they would vote in favor of the state’s inequality amendment, even as thirty-four percent of those same respondents admit to not knowing what the bill entails, a new survey released by Public Policy Polling shows. The number of voters who said they would vote ‘yes’ dropped to just 41 percent once informed that Amendment One bans both same-sex marriage and civil unions. Just 31 percent of respondents could correctly identify the bill’s aim, while 7 percent thought Amendment One legalizes same-sex marriage. — Fatima Najiy
