August 12, 2016



Our August 2017 flash poll asked NC voters about the major presidential candidates. One question was:

Regardless of how you intend to vote, who do you think would be better at creating jobs? Donald Trump? or Hillary Clinton?

51%     Trump
41%     Clinton
8%       Not Sure

SurveyUSA interviewed 400 likely November voters from the entire state of North Carolina 07/31/16 through 08/02/16 using blended sample, mixed mode. Respondents reachable on a home telephone were interviewed on their home telephone in the recorded voice of a professional announcer, using Registration-list Based Sample (RBS) from Aristotle of Washington, DC. Respondents not reachable on a home telephone were shown a questionnaire on their smartphone, tablet or other electronic device.

Crosstabs are available here.
