Two and a half weeks ago, the Elon University Poll asked North Carolinians, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as president?”
Forty-eight disapproved and 45% approved.
Last week, PPP asked North Carolinians,”Do you approve or disapprove of President Barack Obama’s job performance?”
Forty-nine percent disapproved and 49% approved.
Not much change. With the margins of error, it’s pretty much deadlocked.
Here is a comparison of the Elon Poll and PPP on the people’s evaluation of the Republican presidential contenders.
Romney is viewed favorably by 34% in Elon’s poll, 31% in PPP’s.
Santorum is viewed favorably by 32% in Elon’s poll, 36% in PPP’s.
Paul is viewed favorably by 33% in Elon’s poll, 27% in PPP’s.
Gingrich is viewed favorably by 23% in Elon’s poll, 28% in PPP’s.
It’s fair to say that it remains anyone’s race on the GOP’s side in North Carolina.
