FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Gov. Roy Cooper’s approval rating remains unchanged since the last Civitas Poll in May. The June poll shows identical job approval numbers for the longtime state politician. Cooper holds steady with his 56 percent job approval, while 34 percent disapprove.
Cooper has some built-in political advantages given that Republicans have a veto-proof majority and he can selectively pick his battle with legislators, particularly in terms of calling for more money for teachers and education. Cooper vetoed a 6.5 percent teacher pay raise that became law in the budget while demanding an average pay raise of around 8 percent.
For a list comparing Cooper’s popularity with the other governors across the nation, the Morning Consult has an interesting and perspective. Readers can easily compare Cooper’s popularity with other governors.
