It appears the Civitas Poll and the Policy Policy Polling group in Raleigh have something in common, according to Rob Christensen of the News & Observer. Both polls found dissatisfaction with the President is growing and Democratic contenders for his replacement aren’t faring much better:
Only 41 percent approve of the job the president is doing, while 52 percent disapprove, according to a new statewide survey by Public Policy Polling, a group in Raleigh. (A similar question asked by a survey conducted for the Civitas Institute found 39 percent approve and 57 disapprove of Bush’s job performance.)
Asked if they would tend to vote for a generic Democrat or generic Republican, North Carolina voters preferred a Democrat over a Republican 47 percent to 42 percent.
But voters don’t seem particularly overjoyed with any of the prospective Democrats. Those polled said they would be less likely to vote for the ticket if Democrats John Edwards, Barack Obama and especially Hillary Clinton were on the ticket.
