With President Obama in North Carolina today, it is worth noting his approval rating in other polls. Or, perhaps more accurately, his disapproval rating. (In the Elon University Poll, 48 percent of North Carolina residents disapprove of his performance; 45 approve.)
Gallup: 48 percent disapprove; 43 percent approve.
Rasmussen: 51 disapprove; 48 approve
NBC/Wall Street Journal: 45 disapprove; 50 approve
High Point University: 52 percent disapprove; 42 approve
Quinnipiac: 49 percent disapprove; 45 approve
But as this polling roundup chart at Huffington Post shows — and the Elon University Poll confirms in North Carolina — his approval ratings are trending up.
