RALEIGH, NC – A new Americans for Prosperity poll indicates that a majority of likely North Carolina voters are in favor of tax reform passed and signed into law last year. Key toplines include:

  • Fifty-four (54) percent of likely voters say they support the tax reform law passed in 2013.
  • Seventy (70) percent of voters believe that states with lower taxes are more likely to be economically competitive.
  • Sixty-two (62) percent of voters believe that businesses will be more likely to move to North Carolina due to lower tax rates.

“It’s clear that the majority of North Carolinians are in favor of the tax reforms passed in North Carolina,” said Donald Bryson, Deputy State Director for Americans for Prosperity’s North Carolina chapter. “In fact, voters not only believe that tax relief and reform will make the state more economically competitive, but a majority also believes that state government should control spending more.”

Sixty (60) percent of those polled said that they disagreed with the notion that government should increase spending every single year.

The survey of 1,000 likely voters in North Carolina was conducted by Pulse Opinion Research on June 23-24, 2014.  Pulse Opinion Research, LLC is an independent public opinion research firm using automated polling methodology and procedures licensed from Rasmussen Reports, LLC. The population targets were based upon census bureau data, a series of screening questions to determine likely voters, and other factors.

The margin for error on the results is +/-3.0 percent.
