Bev Perdue may be North Carolina's first female Governor, but that's not getting her any sympathy from her fellow women as her approval rating continues on a downward spiral.
An average of PPP's last three monthly approval polls actually finds her less popular among women than men. On average 28% of women have approved of her job performance, with 53% disapproving. The numbers have been slightly better with men, as 32% approve to 52% disapproving.
For the sake of comparison, Kay Hagan is much more popular among women than men. 33% of women approve of the job she's doing while only 24% disapprove, compared to 41% of men disapproving and only 31% approving.
Female politicians, and especially Democratic female politicians, tend to be more popular with women than men. But Perdue is breaking the trend.
