N.C. voters: What's fracking?

Posted by on Fri, Apr 13, 2012 at 12:04 PM

Half of North Carolina voters have no opinion on fracking, according to a recent survey of 975 people by Public Policy Polling.

"The reaction for a plurality of North Carolinians, when asked about it, is 'huh?'" PPP stated in a press release.

Of those who did have an opinion, 27 percent oppose the controversial energy drilling practice, while 24 percent approve.

"The party lines on the issue are pretty predictable," PPP stated. "Republicans support it; Democrats and independents are opposed."

The automated telephone poll has a margin of error of +/- 3.14 percent.
