State Innovation Exchange (SiX) and the NC Budget and Tax Center (BTC) recently collaborated on an online focus group to test North Carolina voters’ attitudes on the state’s tax system, thoughts on public assistance programs, voting rights and other issues. This survey asked 150 white swing voters and 150 voters of color to provide their opinions and react to key arguments around a range of progressive policy solutions. The results showed that these groups equally support a fair tax system, helping working families gain financial security, ending gerrymandering, providing greater access to the ballot box, and more legislative efforts to ensure an economy that works for everyone.
Results of the survey can be found here.
