Raleigh, N.C. – Ratings keep dropping for North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory, even in his own party. For the third month in a row, he has a net-negative approval rating- it’s at 35-53, down from last month’s rating of 39-51. 24% of Republicans say they disapprove.
The General Assembly maintained its 24% approval rating. 54% of voters say Republicans having total control of the state government has been a bad thing for North Carolina. State government Republicans as a whole have a 32% approval rating.
Favorability of both Democrats and Republicans in the N.C. legislature has dropped since August- both are at 34%. Democrats are still up in the hypothetical state legislative ballot 48-41. McCrory trails in match-ups against Democrats Roy Cooper, Janet Cowell, Charles Meeker and Josh Stein, even though the Democrats all have low name recognition. Just a third of voters think McCrory is calling the shots more in the state government than the General Assembly.
