Latest poll shows voters support Charlotte’s right to pass LGBT protections without state interference

signage2On the eve of a special legislative session to repeal Charlotte’s recently passed anti-discrimination ordinance, Public Policy Polling is out with an interesting new poll.

PPP surveyed 843 registered voters last weekend and found only 25% of North Carolina voters believe the General Assembly should override the ordinance.

That compares to 51% who think Charlotte should have the right to pass its own laws without interference from on state lawmakers.

The polling group also notes bipartisan consensus on this issue with Democrats (58/17), independents (48/21), and Republicans (45/38) alike believing Charlotte’s new law should be left alone by the General Assembly.

Heading into the spring legislative session, the General Assembly has an overall favorability rating of just 18 percent, according to PPP.
