The falling popularity of a governor
Guess which governor’s popularity has dropped 13 percent since earlier this year and whose job approval rating is now ten points in the negative with 53 percent of voters not happy with the job the governor is doing?
It is not North Carolina Governor Beverly Perdue. It is Republican Chris Christie of New Jersey and the numbers are from a recent survey by Public Policy Polling.
Christie is often cited by folks on the Right as a governor who is doing things the right way. Well, not according to the voters of New Jersey.
People everywhere are anxious and worried and are taking it out on the politicians in power, Democrats or Republicans.
In case you are wondering about Perdue’s numbers, they are better than Christie’s even if you use the results from the latest Civitas Poll that claims that 44 percent of North Carolina approve of the job Perdue is doing and 47 percent disapprove.
