North Carolinians Want Action on Homelessness


Homelessness is a concern that crosses party lines in the Tar Heel state.

More than three-quarters of North Carolina’s voters believe it is more compassionate to move homeless individuals into available shelters than to allow them to set up camp wherever they choose.

More than twice as many voters believe recovery programs are effective in reducing long-term, chronic homelessness than believe the same of subsidized housing programs.

Results for this poll were collected using a sampling frame that gathered responses from 1,285 likely North Carolina voters during live calls, online panels, and automated telephone interviews conducted by Cor Strategies, Inc.
The survey was conducted April 30–May 3, 2024. The margin of sampling error is ±2.73 percentage points. The margin of sampling error may be higher or lower for subgroups. Results presented may not always appear to total 100 percent due to rounding.
Data were post-stratified using weighted demographic information from the U.S. Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey Voting and Registration Supplement and the state election authorities.
Demographic information for actual voters in past elections was used to construct sample target weights.
Cicero Institute paid for all costs associated with this survey.
