The latest WMUR Granite State Poll finds New Hampshire voters are evenly split on the constitutional amendment to ban a state income tax, oppose repeal of same-sex marriage, favor Democrats for the state legislature and really like Gov. John Lynch.
- 40% of those surveyed support the constitutional ban on a state income tax. 41% oppose the amendment. 2/3 of voters must support the amendment for it to be ratified.
- 61% of New Hampshire adults oppose repealing the state’s same sex marriage law. Only 28% would support repeal.
- New Hampshire voters favor Democrats for the state legislature by a 4-point margin, 39%-35%, a similar result to this week’s Public Policy Polling survey.
- 67% approve of the job Lynch is doing as governor, compared to just 19% who disapprove. Even a majority of Republicans (53%) approve.
The Granite State Poll is sponsored by WMUR-TV and conducted by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center. The results are based on telephone interviews of 581 adults with a margin of error of +/- 4.1% and a subsample of 555 likely voters with a margin or error of +/- 4.2%. The interviews were conducted on August 1-12, 2012 on landline and cellular telephones.
