Democrat split could open door for GOP governor candidatesPosted: January 31, 2011
A recent poll shows that NC Democrats are split three ways over the current governor:
The Civitas Institute-commissioned poll released this week, shows 29 percent of Democrats and unaffiliated voters say they would vote for Perdue in a Democratic primary for governor if an election were held today. Thirty percent said they would vote for a different Democrat and 35 percent said they are undecided. Six percent are not accounted for.
Perdue is apparently undaunted by the low approval numbers, which are not surprising given the November election results which shifted the power of both General Assembly houses from Democrat to Republican for the first time in more than a century
