Poll shows bipartisan support for NC film incentives
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A new poll of North Carolina voters shows support for continuing the state’s film incentives, including broader support among Republicans than Democrats.
The survey conducted by Raleigh-based Public Policy Polling earlier this week of 1,076 registered voters found 41 percent of respondents support extending the state’s current tax credit program for film, while 29 percent were opposed. The other 30 percent were not sure.
The poll found Republicans support the program 46-30, while support was lower among Democrats polled at 37-27.
A breakdown of responses by area codes of those surveyed by phone showed some of the lowest support where you might expect the most. Respondents in the 910 area code, which includes southeastern North Carolina, has the second lowest level of support at 34 percent and the highest level of opposition at 40 percent.
PPP says the poll has a margin of error of +/-3.0 precent.
