The poll truth from Scott Mooneyham

This is from today’s “Afternoon Update” from the state government news service, the Insider and its intrepid editor/journalist, Scott Mooneyham:

All Feragainst It
A new poll from Public Policy Polling and commissioned by public relations agency CapStrat finds that North Carolina voters believe that state spending is too high and favor budget cuts over new taxes. The poll also finds that a majority believes teacher salaries are too low and that cutting public education will hurt families. On a related note, North Carolinians favor green grass but oppose having to walk outside in the rain. (THE INSIDER, 6/30/10).”
