While our last Governor tried to balance a budget during a global and national recession, she still cared for children, middle class. McCrory misrepresented moderation by allowing ALEC to write laws that gut education, middle class and women's health. Teachers and women who voted for him should be ashamed.

Republicans do nothing but destroy good governance. They are a threat to the nation.


Elizabeth, the Governor does not equal the legislature. Your criticism is misdirected.

J Perdue

How are Republicans a threat to the nation when it's the Libs that have the most control? JD Overton is a little lost...


I think Elizabeth's point is that the Governor can either sign or not sign a bill (both implying endorsement) or veto a bill (implying disapproval) so he is therefore not absolved of responsibility of ANY bill that crosses his desk.


Where in the world do you think that the Liberals have the most control? Not in North Carolina..Not in Florida, not in Arizona,not in Ohio, not in Texas..(all states where everything is going to hell, by the way)
...and controlled by REPUGS.

Joe Heathen

Texas makes North Carolina look like Heaven on Earth because of the religious backwardness of the hick legislators elected by the intellectually infirm. The odiousness of the malfeasance of such legislatures is spread throughout the nation, a nation being run by a conspicuous minority of nimrods who would be challenged to identify just one of their biological parents.

PPP POLLS BY YEAR: 2006-2017

We came to PPP after a public poll in the San Jose Mayoral race showed our opponent ahead by 8 points. They found our candidate (Sam Liccardo) ahead by 3 points and that allowed us to be able to push back with the press against the perception that our opponent was now a strong favorite in the race. Sam ended up winning by 2 points and is now the next Mayor of San Jose. PPP worked very fast and had a very accurate read on the electorate when we needed them

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
