POLL: Carolina Residents Approve Of Obama's Job Performance

A poll of residents of North Carolina and South Carolina shows that a majority thinks the country is on the wrong track, but many approve of President Obama's job performance.

Elon University released the poll, which shows that 60 percent of residents in the two states think the country is on the wrong track. The poll shows 52 percent approve of the way Obama is handling his job.

Elon released the poll Friday, as Obama's first 100 days in office come to an end. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.9 percentage points. The telephone poll was conducted April 19-23 and surveyed 662 residents in the Carolinas.

Poll director Hunter Bacot says he thinks the poll shows people are frustrated because they're not seeing the results they expected for the money that's been spent in the stimulus package.
