OH NOES!! A Public Policy Polling Poll said McCrory’s approval is tanking…
With Moderate Democrats. Key poll questions below.
Q9 Generally speaking, if there was an election for
the state legislature today, would you vote for
the Democratic or Republican candidate from
Not sure 9%
Q17 Would you describe yourself as very liberal,
somewhat liberal, moderate, somewhat
conservative, or very conservative?
Very liberal 10%
Somewhat liberal 16%
Somewhat conservative 23%
Very conservative 19%
Q19 If you are a Democrat, press 1. If a Republican,
press 2. If you are an independent or identify
with another party, press 3.
Nice +9 Democrat Sample there!
The Poll is located here: http://www.publicpolicypolling.com/pdf/2011/PPP_Release_NC_814.pdf
I tweeted asking why the PDF was labeled 2011, but they decided to just retweet me instead of answering me.
Given the poll is +9 Dem and the long, noisy series of
Occupy 2.0 Moral Mondays led by Rev. Barber, his numbers are rather pathetic:
Q13 Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion
of Rev. William Barber?
Not sure 46%
Look at that who 2% dent they made in the real target here – the NCGA:
Q7 Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion
of the Democrats in the North Carolina
Not sure 17%
Now, just for fun, let’s look at McCrory vs Perdue.
Via News 14’s Capital Tonight:
Perdue (2009) McCrory (2013)
February 43/32 (+11) 47/33 (+14)
March 44/35 (+9) 49/35 (+14)
April 41/40 (+1) 49/36 (+13)
May 34/51 (-17) 48/38 (+10)
June 30/53 (-23) 45/39 (+6)
July 25/55 (-30) 40/49 (-9)
August 27/52 (-25) 39/51 (-12)
So as bad as the numbers may seem, McCrory is clearly in a much better situation than Perdue was at this point in her term. Although, Gov. Perdue did see a two point jump in August while McCrory saw a one point drop.
