Poll Shows Sen. Burr Approval Rating At 37 Percent

North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr has a 37 percent approval rating among adults in the state, just one year before he comes up for re-election.

An Elon University poll released Friday shows that 22 percent of respondents disapprove of the way the Republican lawmaker is handling his job. Forty-one percent didn't know how they felt about his performance.

Democrats are eager to challenge Burr when he goes up for re-election in 2010. Elon University Poll Director Hunter Bacot said the incumbent's campaign should be concerned by the numbers, although Burr's numbers are better than two Democrats -- Sen. Kay Hagan and Gov. Beverly Perdue.

The Elon poll surveyed 703 adults from Monday through Thursday of this week. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.8 percentage points.
