The survey of 600 voters found that 65 percent approved of President Obama’s performance in office so far while 16 percent disapproved. 19 percent said they were not sure.
While Obama’s overall approval rating increased five points over a similar poll taken in January, the 16 percent disapproval rating is up from six percent. More people in January were undecided, so Civitas says more people's opinions appear to be firming up.
“Obama’s approval rating in North Carolina continues to be very high through his first month in office,” said Francis De Luca, executive director of the Civitas Institute in a statement to the media. “It will be interesting to see if this trend continues as the honeymoon period passes.”
