RALEIGH –The Civitas Institute has released verbatim responses from North Carolina voters explaining what their impression is of Governor Pat McCrory.
Civitas polls provide insights beyond just numbers, and in this particular poll, we asked voters to tell us what they would say about Governor McCrory in just one word.
Responses were unfiltered and quite varied – from harkening back to his days as mayor of Charlotte to expressing strong opinions of his work as governor.
The poll surveyed 600 registered North Carolina voters, 30 percent of whom were reached on cell phones. The survey was taken November 10-12 and had a margin of error of plus/minus 4 percent.
Here is a sample of their responses to this question:
What is the first word that comes to mind when you hear the name “Pat McCrory”, besides “Governor”?
The word is positive. I think Mr. McCrory is doing the very best he can to help our state.
Pitiful. He’s not a good leader, he set education back about 10 years.
The first person to turn the economy around.
Has the state’s best interests at heart. He is for North Carolina, not for himself.
