HIGH POINT – A new High Point University Poll finds that 42 percent of North Carolina residents approve of President Barack Obama and 38 percent approve of Gov. Pat McCrory’s job performance. Meanwhile, U.S. Senator Kay Hagan has a job approval rate of 32 percent.

The results for Obama and McCrory vary only slightly compared to the HPU Poll fielded earlier this month that found a 39 percent approval rating for both. The previous poll indicated a 40 percent job approval rating for Hagan.

A majority of North Carolina residents – 56 percent – say it is time to give a new person a chance in the U.S. Senate rather than re-electing Hagan. Nineteen percent say they believe she should be re-elected with more than a quarter (26 percent) expressing no opinion.

“Two weeks after our last poll, there is not much positive movement for most of the top elected officials,” said Dr. Sadie Leder Elder, assistant professor of psychology and associate director of the HPU Poll. “This general discontent with government is similar to negative feelings we have been seeing in how people think about other parts of their lives, as well.”
