HPU Poll: 39 percent in NC approve of McCrory’s, Obama’s job performances

Pat McCrory

HIGH POINT, N.C. — A recent High Point University poll finds that 39 percent of North Carolinans approve of President Barack Obama and Governor Pat McCrory’s job performance, university officials announced Monday.

Meanwhile, U.S. Senators Kay Hagan and Richard Burr have job approval ratings of 40 and 36 percent, respectively.

Officials say the HPU Poll surveyed 548 adults in North Carolina in the spring and found a 49 percent approval rating for McCrory and a 43 percent approval rating for Obama.

The most recent survey was fielded by live interviewers at the High Point University Survey Research Center calling between Sept. 8 and Sept. 12, 2013.

The responses from a sample of all North Carolina counties came from 408 adults with landline or cellular telephones.

The Survey Research Center contracted with Survey Sampling International to acquire this sample. The survey has an estimated margin of sampling error of approximately 5 percentage points for these respondents. The data are weighted toward population estimates for cellular and landline telephone use, age, gender and race. In addition to sampling error, factors such as question wording and other methodological choices in conducting survey research can introduce additional error into the findings of opinion polls.
