PPP: McCrory has high approval with GOP, breaks even with Democrats

Pat McCrory has a predictably high approval rating among Republicans—82 percent compared to 8 percent who disapprove and the rest undecided—according to a poll by Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling.

But the governor-elect is also viewed relatively favorably in the eyes of Democrats.

33 percent of Democrats surveyed have a positive view of McCrory, 35 percent disapprove, and the rest are waiting to see how the former mayor of Charlotte governs.

The poll suggests that North Carolinians are not, however, pleased with his transition into office because of his continued employment at a Charlotte law firm.

51 percent believe his employment at Moore & Van Allen amounts to a conflict of interest because the firm lobbies the state; 31 percent believe there is nothing wrong with the relationship.

To conduct the poll, 578 voters from across the state were surveyed from Dec. 6-9. The margin of error is +/- 4.1 percentage points.

then how do you explain...

... PPP's national recognition as the most accurate polling form in the nation during the 2012 elections? What defines left-leaning if their results are accurate? 


Good morning, AP...

PPP had pretty much the best polling track record in the run-up to the November elections. They correctly predicted more outcomes than anyone else.

I'm sure they lean Democratic. But their track record in this cycle was very good.

good ol' "leaning" PPP

If PPP "leaned" much further "Left" they would fall over.   But if they do I'm sure The N&O will pick them up.   :-)
