Jobs Governor?

Bev Perdue has some work to do if she wants the 'Jobs Governor' moniker she attached to herself last week to catch on.

Only 20% of voters in the state give her an 'excellent' or 'good' rating on the topic of job creation so far, with 38% saying she's done a poor job on that front.

Perdue's overall approval rating comes in at 30% this month, with 48% of voters expressing disapproval. This matches her highest level of approval since last May when it was 34%.

Her numbers are getting slightly better because Democrats are slowly starting to warm back up to her. She gets good marks from within her party by a 47/32 margin. With independents (21%) and Republicans (12%) she continues to post very poor numbers.

Republicans lead 45-42 on the generic legislative ballot this month, providing continuing evidence that their chances of gaining control of the General Assembly are the best they've been in a long time.

It's odd that Apple Dumplin' would wrap herself in that mantra when she's knows (or does she?) that government doesn't create jobs.
