No to “Medicaid”, Yes to school choice and ballot security-Says GOP voters

Large majorities of North Carolina Republican voters continue to back GOP efforts in the General Assembly on school choice, ballot security, and the General Assembly’s position against efforts to expand Medicaid.

Republican state legislators have the full backing of their voting base on three key issues now being debating at the North Carolina General Assembly. This is according to new survey results of likely 2022 GOP primary voters obtained exclusively by Carolina Journal.

The poll was conducted by Spry Strategies, which interviewed 700 likely 2022 GOP primary voters using a blend of traditional live-caller landline, IVR, & online mobile interviews. The interviews were collected from April 21-24, 2021. The survey has a margin of error of + / – 4. An interview on the poll with Spry Strategies’ founder Ryan Burrell is available here.

CJ’s previously reported data from the survey results, exploring the 2022 GOP primary U.S. that showed strong initial support for Governor Pat McCrory, with former Congressman Mark Walker and Congressman Ted Budd trailing.

The survey also showed that Republican likely voters give Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson high job approval numbers, and overwhelmingly support his decision to bypass the U.S. Senate race in 2022.

GOP voters are strongly against Medicaid expansion

On the question of Medicaid expansion, despite a nearly five-year campaign by Governor Roy Cooper to get the General Assembly to expand the program, Republican voters are largely opposed. Although Medicaid originally covered poor pregnant women and children, expansion would also include some able-bodied men of working age. “Do you support or oppose North Carolina expanding Medicaid?”

45.8% of likely GOP primary voters strongly oppose expanding Medicaid with 18.1 % somewhat opposed.

Overall, 64% oppose the expansion of Medicaid while only 28% support expansion and 8% are unsure. GOP base is all in on school choice funding

On school choice, GOP lawmakers are attempting to expand school choice, saying that a voter demand for more educational options is driving their effort. When asked “Republicans in the General Assembly have proposed increased funding for school choice options including charter schools and grants for low-income children to attend schools of their choice. Governor Cooper opposes these measures. Which position do you support?”

Three-quarters (75%) of GOP voters support the position of Republican lawmakers for more school choice options and additional school choice funding, while only 15% support Cooper’s position of cutting funding for school choice options. Ten percent are unsure. GOP primary voters say N.C. is on the wrong track

Overall, 67% of likely 2022 GOP primary voters believe North Carolina is on the “wrong track” while 33% believe North Carolina is on the right track. Of the 67% of respondents who said N.C. is on the “wrong track,” 27% cited election security and voter fraud as a reason North Carolina is headed in the wrong direction.

GOP lawmakers have the strong support of their voters on a key voting security measure. When asked “Under current law people who vote by mail can have their votes counted as long as they are received by the Board of Elections three days after the election. The General Assembly is considering moving up the deadline, requiring all mail ballots to be received by election day. Do you support this proposal?”
