Skip to comments.25% (number of aproval for Gov Perdue of North Carolina)
Posted on 07/15/2009 6:13:21 PM PDT by bilhosty
Bev Perdue's approval rating is now down to 25%, with 55% of voters disapproving of her performance and 20% ambivalent.
From a high of 44% in March, Perdue's approval dropped to 41% in April, 34% in May, 30% in June, and now 25%.
She wants to tax movies, of all things, to bring nc out of its own billions in deficit. She wants to increase sales taxes - in the middle of a recession - to “save our schools”. NC unemployment is getting near 13%.
Those are a few of the reasons most in NC LOATHE Perdue - but, then, they loathed TAXEASLEY before her and nothing changed in these elections.
The State Employees union, the teachers union, have all the power in NC.....and these Dxxxx Dems know it.
NC has become the Taxachussetts of the South.
Her economic record is pathetic. The economy is going to be the Dems’ undoing.
Well...It’s probably because she is an empty pantsuit and all the air has gone out.
I will say this. Weasley deserved a lot lower. But the state media did not see fit to expose HIS crap until AFTER he was out of office.
Maybe Matlock can campaign for her again.
I remember when NC was seen as a good place to be.
It appears Bev Perdue who is a Democrat and one that has pissed off the right and ran away from the left. It could be that she has made herself inconsequential.
Yes it was a good place, a great place to live.
Now our roads have gone to pot and our tax burden and job losses have soared.
It’s still decent to live here but soon it won’t be.
“The State Employees union...”
PA-LEEZ.... State employees get the shaft with a side order of threats. Teachers get the gold mine and a complimentary “can I wipe your ***?”
Andy G. campaigned for her?
SC is heading that direction. Whatever NC does, SC usually follows.
She is a disaster following in the footsteps Easley and Hunt and Hunt.
It was State employees who were out standing by the side of the road today in NC begging Blue Cross to go along with Obama’s healthcarenightmare!
They don’t have to go to a real job.
She wants to tax our well water. She wants to tax mileage. She just got a raise in sales tax.
I was in NC four weeks ago. I thought I was in a third world country.
The number one source of political support for my NC Rep, David Price, is the government workers’ union!
Pretty neat deal - our tax dollars pay these salaries and the union dues which in turn fund the re-election of these sleazoid Demoniacs - again and again and again and again.
I know many state workers who are very decent people. But most have never worked OVERTIME in their careers and all are just waiting til they get the magic number - whether that is age 55 or 30 years - so they can retire and be paid by the willing taxpayers of NC for the rest of their lives.
Again, I know - and LOVE - many who have benefitted from being state employees and know that they are chief reason #1 plus the teachers as to why the Dems stay in power in NC.
It’s a sick cycle and nothing but total impoverishment of this state will likely break it.
Quite a number of NC Dems are under federal investigation. Culture of Corruption applies to NC Dems.
Don’t know about that. If true, stupid. But MY point is, the dims laugh at the state employees union. That why their CEO gets thrown out of their legislative offices.
Just because they are stupid does not mean they have power over the dims or Perdew.
OH and we are adding the first toll road in NC! Aren’t we special!
They give their union money to support Price and the other Dems, bigtime. I don’t know about what you describe. (being thrown out of the legislative offices).
I assume she’s a donk since the article doesn’t say? (Pretty safe bet - bad news about a pol without party named = donk almost always.)
Let's hear it again boys.
What we need is some one who will do the right thing.
Ok DB what is the right thing.
Why you know, some one who doesn't know what a sick bunch of child molesting SOB’s we are.
The NC repubs. have to be the most inept, incompetent bozos on the entire planet. The RATS nominated Mizis Perdue to get rid of her. What did the know nothing molesters, chesters and prof. Humberts do?
Nominate the mayor of Charlotte. The RATS have got the goods on some of the top Rinos. Do some homework. Check the Washington DC police reports for Jan. 20, 1981. Look closely at the prominent names from the old north state contained there in.

YES, PERDUE is ANOTHER DEMOCRATIC DISASTER which will ensure NC’s continuing slide into economic oblivion.
OK.... I give you part of that. I’ve put in a lot more time than i’ve gotten paid for. But I don’t argue that that the exception.
Still. The “union” gets no respect for the electeds. They are pretty much a joke.
Not to mention the wife of the former Governor Easley getting a 188,000 per year job at NC State University - which has resulted in the resignations of 3 top NCSU officials.
Corruption is now what the C stands for in NC.
We have become a shame and a disgrace.
LOL - sad but true. Slowly but surely, NC is becoming a backwater state again because EMPLOYERS do NOT want to do business here where the tax rates only go UP on businesses and on peeople.
These employers close down or move overseas or move to more attractively sane states who have figured that if you lower corporate and business taxes, the employers the corporations BRING their businesses and their JOBS and their taxes they do pay to the state and help reduce the deficit and the jobless rate.
What part of NC did you visit?
Thanks for that link. I don’t think it’s that association which I meant - but it is the UNION of City, County, and State government workers that provides the cash that keeps these Dems in power.
I thought it was the Dems in the House who did not want to lay off many state government workers which is why they are fighting with Perdue over how to meet the NC Consitutional requirement of a balanced budget.
In other words - neither Perdue or the Legislature want to reaise the ire of the Government Workers UNIONS by having to lay off MANY more in the bureacracy of state government just as businesses have had to lay off workers by the millions in this country because they cannot stay in business any other way.....
So these Dems MUST raise our taxes in NC - sales tax, tax on movies, tax on cigarettes, tax on roads.....they do not know HOW to cut spending because they refuse to lay off the number of workers in State government that would balance the budget - but would take away the votes that keep them in power!
Soooooo, up the taxes and down our economy they go!
Durham, my hometown where I grew up and lived for 30 years.
Oh, yikes, Durham. Nice to know you are a fellow NCarolinian....but sorry about the Durham thing.....
Durham is NC Government in microcosm. Corrupt to the core in its city government.
But, they have Duke, doncha know.
