The Washington Post — There’s good news and bad news for proponents of legalizing marijuana. The bad news: New polls show it’s a losing fight in three states — by a slim margin in Pennsylvania and sizable margins in Iowa and North Carolina. The good news? It’s doing far better among the youngest residents of each state. That’s according to new polls out Monday from Quinnipiac University (Pennsylvania), the Des Moines Register (Iowa) and Elon University (North Carolina).
Fox News — A new poll from Elon University finds Sen. Kay Hagan, D-N.C., only receives 55 percent approval amongst Democrats, down from 63 in November. Overall, 49 percent of Tar Heel state voters disapprove of Hagan. This is Hagan’s fourth straight drop in approval.
N.C. Policy Watch — The latest Elon University Poll finds North Carolinians unhappy with many of the incumbents representing them in Washington and in Raleigh. The February poll found Congress’ approval rating remaining in the single digits (8%). President Barack Obama fared better with an approval rating of 39%, while the majority (over 51%) said they disapprove of the job he is doing.
News & Record — I find it astounding that 38 percent of respondents said they have heard only a little about the coal ash spill into the Dan River that occurred more than a month ago … and 26 percent said they’ve heard nothing.
National Review — North Carolina senator Kay Hagan has seen her approval ratings in the state drop even more — just 33 percent of registered voters approve of the job she’s doing, versus 49 percent disapproving, according to a new poll from Elon University.
