A new survey by Magellan Strategies for NH Journal shows that a near majority of Granite Staters support so-called ‘right-to-work’ legislation. Forty-nine percent of New Hampshire voters support right-to-work, whereas only 37% oppose it. Fifteen percent is undecided.
The Republicans in the House are scrambling to amass enough votes to override Gov. John Lynch’s veto of the bill in May. The law would stop workers from being forced to join a union.
There is a clear partisan split in voter attitudes on the issue. More Republicans support the law that there are Democrats who oppose it, however, and Independents favor the law by a small but meaningful margin of 46%-38%.
The survey was conducted among 536 likely General Election voters between May 25th – 26th and has a margin of error of +/-4.23% at the 95 percent confidence interval.
