Raleigh, N.C. – President Obama continues his slide, as only 40% of North Carolina voters approve of the job he’s doing, compared to 54% who disapprove. The 14% gap is up from an 11% gap in December, when voters disapproved of him 44/55, and it represents one of his lowest approval ratings since being in office.
Things aren’t going well for Pat McCrory either. Only 37% of voters approve of the job he’s doing, versus 47% who disapprove. These numbers are down from December, when 42% of voters approved, and they signal the end of McCrory’s three-month rally, where his poll numbers had modestly improved after bottoming out in September.
Statewide, voters across party lines think McCrory should replace DHHS Secretary Adolna Wos (37/17 among Democrats, 41/12 among Republicans). The General Assembly is still wildly unpopular (17/53), although Republicans now have a slight lead in the generic ballot for state legislature (43% would vote for a Republican, 42% for a Democrat). Democrats had been leading in our December poll (45/43).
