Elon poll finds Obama, McCrory approval ratings declining
ELON, N.C. — A new Elon University poll shows North Carolinians are growing increasingly dissatisfied with both President Barack Obama and Gov. Pat McCrory.
President Obama’s state approval rating currently sits at 37 percent, down from 47 percent in February, according to the poll.
Gov. McCrory’s state approval rating was reported at 33 percent, a steady decline from 46 percent in April.
Congress’s approval rating was found to be below nine percent – the lowest ever approval rating for Congress in Elon poll history.
The poll found the North Carolina General Assembly to be at just under 32 percent.
Elon officials said the poll sampled 681 registered voters in North Carolina by using a computer-assisted telephone interviewing lab on campus.
Organizers said the poll was conducted earlier this month and has a 3.76 percent margin of error and a 95 percent confidence level.
