Apparently, the voters have no clue. This month, we asked voters which party, the Democratic or Republican controlled the NC House, NC Senate and the Governor’s mansion.
– Less than half the voters know who is in charge of the General Assembly.
– Only 49% correctly identified the Democrats in charge of the House.
– 40% correctly identified the Democrats in charge of the Senate.
Strangely, though, a whopping 61% could correctly identify that the Governor was a Democrat. Francis seems to think it has to do with his public endorsements of Hillary and then Obama, so people relate him to a Democratic presidential candidate. I was hoping that maybe all the recent bad publicity had made people pay attention. Unfortunately, I think Francis’ theory is probably right.
