Elon Poll in the news

The New York Times’ story on Art Pope and N.C. politics:

“Lawmakers cut corporate taxes and aid to the jobless, refused the federal expansion of Medicaid and froze teacher salaries, dropping the state close to the bottom in teacher pay nationally. Support for the governor and legislature declined in polls. Governor McCrory’s approval rating was at 33 percent and the General Assembly was below 32 percent in an Elon University poll of registered voters in November.

“In a finding that might alarm business interests, 43 percent said North Carolina’s image as a good place to live had deteriorated, compared with 21 percent who thought it had improved.”
