While you make your giving decisions this Christmas Season, I hope you'll keep the Civitas Institute in mind.

We're here every single day, fighting for small, accountable government, and working to diminish the influence of the liberal Left in our state.

We don’t take government funds, and we won’t ever take stolen taxpayer money. We go out and ask for it, and now I'm asking you.

If you like our work and you think our mission is valuable, will you help keep us in the fight?

RALEIGH – The latest Civitas Poll provides insights on North Carolina’s political scene.

NC Direction

Fifty-seven percent of respondents think the state is headed on the wrong track; less than a third (31 percent) think it’s headed in the right direction. The “right direction” result was the lowest since our July 2012 poll.

Legislature

Asked which party’s candidate they’d favor if the election for the state General Assembly were held today, 39 percent chose the generic Republican, and 42 percent chose the generic Democrat.

President Obama

President Obama’s job approval rating remains under water: 54 percent disapprove of the job he is doing. Forty-five percent approve.

Gov. Pat McCrory

The governor has a dead-even rating: 45 percent approve of the job he’s doing, 45 disapprove.

Text questions*:

And now thinking about North Carolina… Do you feel things in North Carolina are generally headed in the right direction or have gotten off on the wrong track?
