Civitas Poll: Voters back developing NC natural gas resources

The latest Civitas Poll shows that North Carolina voters strongly favor developing the state’s natural gas resources, including offshore reserves. The poll of 500 NC registered voters had a margin of error of plus-minus 4.36 percent. “Voters want to see North Carolina develop the natural resources lying right under our feet, or just off our seacoast,” said Civitas President Francis X. De Luca. “Legislators should heed these beliefs, and pay less attention to the scare tactics often used to block energy development.”
