Poll: Support for cooperation of sheriffs on immigration is 2 in 3 voters



(The Center Square) – Support for North Carolina’s 100 sheriffs to cooperate with federal Immigration Customs Enforcement agents is supported by 2 in 3 likely voters, a new poll says.

Asked if supporting or opposing state law requiring cooperation, 65.8% of respondents to a Carolina Journal poll said they would support, including 50.2% “strongly” in support. Only 11.3% were strongly opposed, 5.8% somewhat opposed and more than 9% were unsure.

The poll, conducted for the publication with Cygnal, was conducted Saturday and Sunday with 600 likely general election voters. The margin of error is +/- 3.99%. Carolina Journal is connected with the conservative-leaning John Locke Foundation.

The monthly poll had recurring questions to gauge the fluctuations for elections in progress and climaxing on Nov. 5. In addition to the presidential race, North Carolinians are choosing all 10 spots on the Council of State, all 14 members of the U.S. House of Representatives and all 170 seats in the General Assembly. Several judicial races are also available to all, and there are local elections.

The polling found 13.4% support both the action and the cause of pro-Palestine protestors on American university campuses. That’s up against 40.6% who do not support the protest or actions. There were 33.4% saying they supported the protest and that criminal charges should be applied where applicable.

For its question on the presidential race, respondents had choices of Democratic President Joe Biden, former Republican President Donald Trump, independent Robert F. Kennedy r., someone else and undecided. Trump led Biden 42.6%-38.1%, Kennedy had 8.8% and 6.3% were undecided. There was 19.3% combined, or 1 in 5, not choosing Trump or Biden.

For governor, 17.1% are undecided in the race led by Republican Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson (39.2%) and Democratic Attorney General Josh Stein (39.1%).

And, when asked about the $1 billion revenue surplus expected over the next two years, respondents favored (40.7%) passing a rule to return the money to taxpayers over expanding the state budget to spend on priorities (16.7%) or allocating the money (16.3%) to a fund for future emergencies.
