Recent Survey Center Poll: NH Watching Ebola Outbreak But Not Concerned With Catching It

graph: How Closely Are You Following the Ebola Outbreak

The UNH Survey Center reports the following:

Although the Ebola outbreak has been raging in West Africa for the better part of this year, it has increasingly made headlines here in the United States with the death of one man and the infection of two health workers who cared for him. Granite Staters are paying attention to the outbreak–39% say they are watching the situation very closely, 46% somewhat closely, 12% not too closely and 3% not at all closely. Republicans (52%) are more likely to be watching the outbreak very closely than Independents (34%) and Democrats (32%).

However, Granite Staters aren’t worried that their family members will contract Ebola–only 8% are very worried, 22% are somewhat worried, 37% are not too worried, and 33% are not worried at all. These figures mirror a national survey conducted by Pew this October.

These findings are based on the latest WMUR Granite State Poll, conducted by the UNH Survey Center. Five hundred and forty-three (543) randomly selected New Hampshire adults were interviewed by landline and cellular telephone between October 6 and October 13, 2014. The margin of sampling error for the survey is +/-4.2 percent.
