Spotlight: North Carolina
Here are some exclusive, valuable insights from Resonate that shed important light on what really moves voters in the Tar Heel State.
North Carolina Fact #1: Voters are vocal participants in the political process.
Voters in North Carolina are 4% more likely to both follow an issue and also attend a public meeting. 30% of the population use their voices by contacting politicians and sharing their thoughts online. They are less likely than the average voter to give money to charities (6%) and to contribute to causes (14%).
North Carolina Fact #2: Most voters are supportive or persuadable of decriminalizing recreational marijuana use.
40% of North Carolina voters support the legalization of marijuana for general recreational use, while just 23% oppose it. The remaining 37% consider themselves persuadable on the issue.
North Carolina Fact #3: People in North Carolina are more likely to not have health insurance.
10% of the North Carolina voters have no health insurance and they are 50% more likely than the average registered voter to not have health insurance. They are, on the other hand, 40% more likely to have military or other types of health coverage. They are 9-10% less likely to have employer-provided or rely on Medicare and Medicaid benefits.
North Carolina Fact #4: Terrorist and domestic threats are the greatest concern to voters.
While North Carolina voters are 42% less likely than the average U.S. voter to view environmental threats such as climate change as the biggest threat to the U.S, a large percentage of people in the state view domestic threats such as the economy (24%) and terrorist threats such as ISIS and Al Qaeda (54%) as large concerns.
Pro Tip: When developing state-level message and targeting strategy, be mindful of geo differences, down to the Congressional district level.
For example, while the statewide population of North Carolina is more likely to have insurance provided by the military, NC-6 is less likely to have military insurance. NC-3, by contrast, which lines the coat of North Carolina, is much more likely to have military insurance.
