Civitas Institute President Francis De Luca said, “As both state and federal judges act more like legislators than neutral referees, it seems North Carolina voters may want to have more frequent judicial elections to match those of other representative bodies.”
This poll surveyed 600 registered, likely voters (30% on cell phones) with a margin of error of +/- 4.00%. This survey was taken February 7-9, 2017.
