In our poll this month, we asked voters if Gov. Bev Perdue nicknaming herself as the “Jobs Governor” was an appropriate title for the Governor given her first year in office. Only 12% of voters said yes. 68 percent said no.
As for her favorability rating this month it comes in at a -5 (43% unfavorable, 38% favorable), about the same as it was in December (-5).
Perdue’s numbers have rebounded from her lowest points this summer when the rating was -14. This is mainly through her improved standing among Republicans where her unfavorables have fallen from a high of 72% in October to 56% now. Perdue is now back up at 50% favorable with members of her own party for the first time since April 2009.
