Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue is under fire in her final weeks at the helm. But as she rides into the sunset she can take heart in this: she is no longer the least popular governor in the country.
Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn now wears that crown. A new survey from the Democratic Public Policy Polling firm released Thursday put the Democrat's approval rating at 25 percent with 64 percent disapproving of the job he is doing.
A PPP poll at the beginning of the month put Perdue's approval rating at 31 percent with 54 percent disapproving of her performance.
