RALEIGH – A new poll by the Civitas Institute examined North Carolina registered voters’ attitudes about key political leaders.
The poll of 600 registered voters was taken April 20-22, and had a margin of error of plus-minus 4 percent.
“Gov. Pat McCrory continues to have a favorability rating above 50 percent,” Civitas Communications Director Jim Tynen said. “And his unfavorable rating is only 30 percent. He seems to be maintaining a solid base of support as his administration comes into focus.”

About the Poll:
This poll of 600 registered voters, of which 25% (150) were cell phone respondents, in North Carolina was conducted April 20-22, 2013 by National Research, Inc. of Holmdel, NJ. All respondents were part of a fully representative sample of registered general election voters in North Carolina. For purposes of this study, voters interviewed had to have voted in at least one of the past two general elections (2010, 2012) or be newly registered to vote since November 3, 2012.
The confidence interval associated with a sample of this size is such that: 95 percent of the time, results from 600 interviews (registered voters) will be within +-4% of the “True Values.”
