Another group insisted that it was just not the right time for a referendum, with more failing to see the reason for a referendum with the constitution not even five years old.
The 38% who said they would support the referendum vote said they felt the need to address serious shortfalls in the document.
Others believed that the country had been duped by the current government thus the need to force their hand.
The CORD coalition and Governors are seeking a referendum to primarily institute a change in the amount of funds allocated for devolution.
The government however, sees the process as a waste of time and money.
