New poll results on mimimum wage, salary-gate

Public Policy Polling [1]There’s been a fair amount of buzz about Gov. McCrory’s plummeting poll numbers of late. As Under the Dome noted this morning [2], Public Policy Polling [3] finds that the approval rate is now all the way down to 35%.

There’s been less reporting, however, about some interesting issue-based results in the new PPP poll. As Kevin Rogers of Action NC tweeted this morning [4], the poll finds, among other things, strong (better than two-to-one)  support for raising the minimum wage to $10/hr. It also finds overwhelming opposition to the salaries bestowed upon Gov. McCrory’s former campaign staffers (8% “For,” 73% “Against”) and plurality opposition of 39% to 34% to a new casino in Cleveland County.
