We haven't given Bev Perdue much positive news on the polling front since she took office, but here's something she can take to heart: she's the most popular Governor Perdue in the country.
Over the weekend we found Georgia's Governor Perdue- Sonny- with a 29/52 approval spread. That's worse than the 30/47 Bev put up on our monthly North Carolina poll in February.
The two Perdues are suffering from some similar problems. Neither is very popular with independents- Sonny's at 28/50 and Bev's at 29/49. They're also not all that well liked within their own parties- Sonny's got 44% approval from Republicans while Bev has 41% approval from Democrats. Bev's disapproval numbers are lower than Sonny's though because Republicans don't dislike her as much as Democrats dislike him. She has 58% disapproval across party lines while his is 70%.
Now Bev has something to lord over her southern colleague at Governor's meetings.
