Raleigh, N.C. – After bottoming out in September, Pat McCrory's approval numbers continue to tick back up. 42% of voters approve of the job he's doing to 47% who disapprove, a big improvement from 35/53 three months ago. McCrory's numbers are most notably improving with independents- he's back on narrowly positive ground with them at 44/43 after having dropped all the way to 32/57 in September. He's also seeing some progress with his party base, going from 62/24 in late summer up to 68/18 now.
Voters aren't happy with the McCrory administration's policy of making people pay for any public records request that takes more than 30 minutes to process though. Just 23% say they agree with that rule to 62% who disagree with it, and even Republican voters say by a 34/48 spread that they disagree with the McCrory administration's approach on that issue.
