From Carolina Journal Radio Program No. 777: Democrats and Republicans often adopt different stances on public policy issues. But a recent High Point University poll suggests widespread bipartisan agreement on major public education issues. Terry Stoops, John Locke Foundation vice president for research, explains that the poll offers less value than one might expect. It relies on vague questions and offers respondents little detail about trade-offs involved in key policy choices.
