What North Carolina thinks: Elon

What does North Carolina think?

The latest Elon University Poll shows significant agreement on a number of issues that are before the legislature.

Below, the percentage who agreed with a sentiment:

77: The state should make commuter rail available in urban areas.

74: The state should not charge a fee based on miles driven each year.

67: The state should ban smoking in public places, such as restaurants and bars.

— Support a $2 billion bond referendum for bridges and roads.

66: Offshore drilling should be allowed off the coast of North Carolina.

— Except in emergencies, it should be illegal to use a cell phone while driving.

The live phone poll of 758 residents was conducted Feb. 22-26. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.6 percentage points.

After the jump, the rest of the results.

—————

58: Support the death penalty for people found guilty of first-degree murder.

57: Local government should have the option of a half-cent sales tax for buses and rail.

55: The yearly driver's license renewal fee should not be raised.

51: The state should not collect tolls on North Carolina highways.

50: Cities and towns should have a one-year waiting period on annexations.
