A suggestion for June's survey, marking six months of unchecked GOP power in Raleigh, along these lines:

- Is the legislature doing what you expected of them when you cast your vote in November?
- If you could vote now for the same state legislative positions, would your votes be the same or different?

Definitely time to see if there's a significant "buyers' remorse" effect.

I am not at all surprised. Politicians have little or no regards for the voters that put them in office. This is a continuation of the same old tired policy of trickle down dressed up to look like tax reform, in favor again for corporations.
To further insult the voters, the legislature is trying to make it more difficult for the voters to vote their disapproval. Shame on this legislative body.

Governor McCrory runs on a platform of lowering North Carolina's high taxes.
That sounded so refreshing saying that our overall state taxes are the
tenth highest in the country and significantly higher than our
Southeastern neighbors. Lowering tax rates but eliminating deductions
and increasing what is taxed is nothing but deceitful when in the end
your total tax bill is the same.

North Carolina previously has always been regarded as an attraction to retirees.

Now with Social Security benefits being taxed if you receive $1.00 from another resource, retirees
will skip over North Carolina and settle in Virginia or South Carolina.
Seniors do not burden the school systems and are great for the tax base.
There are 36 states that do not tax Social Security.

Typical of politicians this new tax plan is just smoke and mirrors with
the older population the ones getting burned. I can not believe I am
writing this but every politician voting for this will never get my
re-election vote. If that means I vote for a Democrat so be it. I am so
disappointed in my Republican Party and our new Governor!!!!

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
