New poll numbers from the conservative leaning Civitas Institute show North Carolina Governor Beverly Perdue's approval rating has dropped sharply in the past few months.According its survey of 600 voters, Civitas says 38 percent of voters said they had an unfavorable opinion of Perdue. Only 36 percent of voters said they had a favorable opinion. 22 percent said they had no opinion.

In March, Civitas found her favorability rating stood at 57 percent favorable, 20 percent unfavorable.

"For a sitting Governor to have their personal approval rating turn negative this quickly, indicates serious voter discontent with the current administration," Civitas Institute Executive Director Francis De Luca offered.

Civitas said its poll had a 4 percent margin of error.
