Republican Sen. Richard Burr may won re-election in a landslide in 2010, but he remains a curiously little known figure in the state.
Burr has an approval rating of 29 percent, a disapproval rating of 30 percent, with 41 percent having no opinion, according to a new survey by Public Policy Polling, a Democratic leaning firm based in Raleigh. By comparison only 28 percent of North Carolina voters had no opinion about Hagan.
The firm called him “one of the most anonymous senators in the country.''
It's not that Burr doesn't get around. But they tend to be at low profile events that garner little publicity. Today, Burr is scheduled to tour the Wireless Research Center in Wake Forest, attend a Wake Forest Chamber of Commerce Coffee, tour 3Phoenix Inc, in Wake Forest, speak at the Research Triangle Park Rotary Club, and visit the Daniel Center for Science and Math in Raleigh.
The survey of 981 likely North Carolina voters was conducted Sept. 27-31 and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percent.
