North Carolinians remain divided about President Barack Obama, but Gov. Pat McCrory continues to be popular, according to a new poll.
Forty-five percent of North Carolina residents – not just voters – polled said they approved of Obama's job performance, while 46 percent disapproved, according to the Elon University Poll.
McCrory had a job approval rating of 46 percent, which was similar to that of Obama. But his disapproval rating was much lower at 25 percent. McCrory's approval rating has risen from 42 to 46 percent since February.
The approval rating for Congress is only 12 percent.
But the approval rating the state legislature was 37 percent, up four points since February. Another 39 percent disapproved. That suggests that some of the controversial positions the legislature has taken has not hurt it politically.
Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan had an approval rating of 40 percent, and a disapproval rating of 33 percent. Republican Sen. Richard Burr had an approval rating of 39 percent and a disapproval rating of 26 percent.
The survey questioned 770 North Carolina residents between April 5-9 and had a margin of error of 3.53. Unlike most polls it did not quiz just voters, but polled all residents.
