Poll on the Bullying Bill

There is currently a proposal in the General Assembly that specifies the need to protect children from bullying based on their sexual orientation. Do you think this provision should be passed into law?

Yes 72%
No 28%

North Carolinians overwhelmingly support a controversial provision in a bullying bill to specifically name sexual orientation as something children need to be protected from bullying based on.

Support for that provision comes from across party lines. 84% of Democrats are for it, as are 72% of independents, and 58% of Republicans.

Although conservative groups have lined up behind the bill and generated a lot of correspondence to legislators on it, it appears they don't even speak for the majority of Republicans in the state.

The poll also showed strong support for the bill across race, gender, and age lines.
