Poll: Majority In N.C. Disapprove Of Obama

President Barack Obama's continues to lose popularity in North Carolina.

A survey by Public Policy Polling shows 51 percent of North Carolina voters disapprove of Obama's job performance, while 45 percent give Obama good marks.

The latest figures reflect a continuing slow decline in Obama's numbers in North Carolina. The same poll showed his approval rating peaked at 54 percent in April.

The fall has been particularly sharp among independent voters, dropping from a 50 percent approval rating in April to 39 percent in the latest survey.The decline is found among Democratic voters as well.
The survey found 74 percent of Democrats approve of the job Obama is doing, down from 85 percent in the spring.

The survey of 600 North Carolina voters was taken Sept. 2-8, before Obama's speech Wednesday on health care reform.

    Thanks Susan, I was at the Raleigh Vet School today and couldn't opine back. Well and Anonoymous 3:37, you some sense here, what did you have to choose from in 2001 and 2004? Am I to expect you voted for those clowns? It is the choice of two evils, do you get that? OK, you say idiots, well, the choice is for which idiot would run the country better. Again, I am a democrat but I do vote the man, get it?, NOT the party of the man. This is why the ballot is "secret". get it? Both of you need to start doing your homework, you both get an F. You didn't know Obama was a socialist, marxist following George Soros and the Shadow party? Thats sad. Now you see why teaparties are coming around. I hold no man greater than our country, pay attention now, I choose, important word, choose who will do the best job. Color, religion, these don't mater anymore, its about your country not you selfish "party" sheep koolaid. They dish it out all year, learn to think for yourselves please, for the rest.

    Well - don't think anyone has said anything about "praising Bush" and disliking Obama's policies does not make anyone "stupid", just of a different opinion of some, but not most.

    Anyway if I was Obama I would step down and let someone else run the country. I wonder what the country would be like then. Since Bush messed up so badly in his 8 years, but least most of you would be happy.

    It does not matter what color you are. If you dislike Obama and praised Bush you are stupid period.

    AZ, as Obama Snake Oil Co. said - how do you know I am white? Because of your terror that a black person would not like Obama? Believe me, there are MANY!!!! Simply speaking my mind as I am granted by the U.S. Constitution, oh, sorry, I forgot, your hero is trying to take that away from us but sorry to tell you there are alot more smart people in the U.S., democrat and republican alike that won't let that happen. Even Jimmy Carter, had to stand up for Obama in order to try to bring his pole numbers up. To bad he contradicted what Obama said - I must give it to Obama in one instance - at least he knows disagreeing with him DOES NOT make anyone racist. Thank about that and go back into your hole - noone is interested.

    It's amazing what we could do to help things out if we'd get off the computer, quite fighting with each other, and STAND UP FOR WHAT WE BELIEVE IN!!! Quit talking crap AND DO SOMETHING CONSTRUCTIVE!!

    AZ, if Palin was a punk, do you consider yourself to be the same? Secondly, I am a democrat and you don't know what color I am my brother, you assume, isn't that profiling?
