Obama Approval Plummets in NC
Wow! A 14 point drop in approval numbers is amazing! I do not think Pres. Obama can recover from this. A big thanks to Civitas Institute in NC for bringing us this information.
Since May, President Barack Obama has experienced a 14 point shift to the negative in his job approval rating among North Carolina voters, according to a new poll released by the Civitas Institute. The poll also revealed that voters continue to hold an unfavorable opinion of Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue.Forty-four percent of voters polled said they approve of the job that Barack Obama is doing as President of the United States. Fifty-two percent said they disapprove and four percent said they are undecided or do not know. This is a 14 point swing since a May 2011 Civitas poll when Obama’s job approval rating stood at 51 percent approve – 45 percent disapprove.Analyzing party registration, Democratic voters overall approve of Obama’s performance 72 percent approve – 25 percent disapprove. In contrast, Republicans largely disapprove of his performance by an 87 percent to 11 percent margin along with 60 percent of unaffiliated voters.“This is the largest swing we have seen in the president’s job approval and could be another sign that Obama’s support in North Carolina is waning,” said Civitas Institute President Francis De Luca.
