Public Policy Polling of North Carolina on Wednesday published some leftovers of its Georgia survey. See the crosstabs here.
Among the tidbits:
– Voters of all party stripes (56%) agree that alcohol sales should be legal on Sundays. But surprisingly, the measure is more popular with independents (60%) and even Republicans (57%) than with Democrats (53%).
– One reason is that African-American voters (53%) were less enthusiastic about Sunday sales than white voters (59%).
– Another surprise: Younger people aged 18 to 29 were less caught up in the idea (51% approved) than those 30 to 45 (61%) or those 46 to 65 (63%). Senior citizens were the only age group opposed to the measure.
The PPP poll also indicates we like our politicians best when they’re out of office. Former U.S. senator Sam Nunn measured out as the most popular figure in the state. Right behind him was another former senator – and governor — Zell Miller.
