Polls Suggest Widespread Support for Voter ID, Tax Cap Amendments

RALEIGH – Gov. Roy Cooper is leading the #nixallsix campaign against the half dozen constitutional amendments that will appear on the ballot in November. The questions range from whether crime victims should be notified when their attackers may be released from prison, to whether the right to hunt and fish should be constitutionally protected.

Two of the amendments – Voter ID and lowering the cap on income tax rates – were the subject of polling conducted by Elon University. Based on the results, it appears there is widespread support for such measures.

The results show that voter ID and capping the income tax at seven percent are supported across all ages, races, income levels, and political affiliations. Even Democrats support voter ID 43-34, and the income tax cap at a much larger margin, 45-20. Most demographics support both amendments above fifty percent.

So how far removed from the average voter has the N.C. Democratic Party become if even their base is in support of what the party has gone to great lengths to turn into boogey men?

“The results today from the Elon Poll show how far the Governor Cooper and the N.C. Democrat Party have moved out of the mainstream,” stated NCGOP Chairman robin Hayes. “Democrats, Republicans, and Independents all support voter ID and capping the income tax rate at seven percent. These proposed constitutional amendments are clearly supported by the people. Cooper and the NCDP are clearly on the wrong side of their own voters.”

This has a lot to do with why Democrats are in a super-minority in the General Assembly – their policies are not popular.

Further, the more they manufacture hysterics over otherwise common sense policies, the more voters simply roll their eyes.
