What do North Carolinians think about the wage gap issue? What are their opinions on presidential candidates in advance of the N.C. primary election? How do they view North Carolina’s Voter ID law?
To learn the answer to these questions, The Meredith College Poll surveyed registered voters in North Carolina. The Meredith College Poll asked questions about voters’ views on the pay gap between men and women, the importance of a candidate’s appearance in voting decisions, the new Voter ID requirement for elections, and preferred candidates in the North Carolina presidential primaries.

Meredith College has released a new report that examines The Status of Women in North Carolina Politics. The report covers the political offices held by women and offers solutions to improving women’s representation. The release of the report on The Status of Women in North Carolina Politics was part of Meredith’s weeklong focus on women in public service during which the College also released the results of its inaugural Meredith College Poll, focused on voter opinions about women in politics, and presented its 2015 Woman of Achievement Award to former North Carolina Supreme Court Chief Justice Sarah Parker.
