New HPU poll: Sexual harassment a serious problem in N.C.

As Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich) steps down from Congress amid accusations of sexual harassment and President Donald Trump backs Roy Moore for Senate despite them and worse, a new poll shows that a majority of North Carolinians believe sexual harassment is a problem in the state.

The High Point University Poll, released last week, asked respondents how serious a problem sexual harassment at work is in the U.S. and in North Carolina specifically.

According to the poll, 49 percent of those polled said sexual harassment is a very serious problem at work in the United States. Another 35 percent said it is a somewhat serious problem. Thirty-two percent of North Carolina residents said that the harassment is a very serious problem at work in North Carolina, with 38 percent saying it is a somewhat serious problem.

Live interviewers at the High Point University Survey Research Center conducted the survey from Nov. 10-16, 2017. The survey has an estimated margin of sampling error of approximately 4.5 percentage points for all adult respondents. The data is weighted toward population estimates for cellular and landline telephone use, age, gender, education and race.
