Seventy-seven percent said the tech industry is "very" or "critically" important to the future of New Hampshire's economy.

Seventy-seven percent said government should not have a role in designing computer software.

Seventy-two percent said the Microsoft antitrust suit is an example of wasteful government spending.

Seventy-seven percent said Microsoft's business practices are normal and have created quality products and more opportunities for consumers.

Fifty-six percent said they would be "less likely" to vote for a candidate for public office that supported increased government regulation and litigation of the technology industry.

A total of 628 registered New Hampshire voters were interviewed for the phone survey on Nov. 29 and 30.
