With the State Board of Elections set to convene history-making hearings into the campaign finances of former Governor Mike Easley, a new poll released shows current Governor Bev Perdue is thought of more unfavorably than Easley by the voters of North Carolina.
When asked if they had a favorable or unfavorable opinion of Bev Perdue and Mike Easley, the live caller survey of 600 likely voters revealed that 47.5 percent of voters had an unfavorable opinion of former Governor Easley, but 49.8 percent of voters held a similar opinion of the current governor. Perdue does have higher favorable opinions the poll revealed, with 37.2 percent of voters giving her a favorable opinion while only 29.7 percent did for Easley.
Yep. More people have an unfavorable opinion of Perdue than they do of Easley. Pretty surprising isn’t it?
