High Marks for Obama in NC

Barack Obama may have taken North Carolina by the smallest of margins in November, but PPP's newest survey finds that he's won over a lot of voters in the state in the subsequent 11 weeks.

He receives a 66% approval rating for his transition, with just 25% disapproving.

The support for his work in preparing to take office is universal across demographic lines: voters within every gender, race, and age category that we track give him at least 60% approval.

That's particularly notable with white North Carolinians. Only a little more than a third of them gave Obama their votes, but 61% give their approval to his transition.

Although there has been some consternation from the liberal wing of the party about some of Obama's decisions in the last couple months, a remarkable 89% of Democrats approve of the transition. It's hard to get 89% of Democrats to agree on what color the sky is.

Voters most concerned about health care, education, and the economy give Obama his overall highest marks.

Full results here.

I cannot wait for to come back in four years and see you crying on the keyboard when Obama gives his concession speech on November 4, 2012.

I'm hoping he fails completely; I don't need any welfare checks, so I'm solid even if Obama screws over the entire nation.

First president ever to be endorsed by Hamas. You cannot deny that fact, Jensen. Endorsed by a terrorist organization.
