Hunt most popular gov; Easley the least

Comes word from Public Policy Polling's Tom Jensen that former Gov. Mike Easley, under fire for all sorts of things that happened on his watch, is the least popular of former N.C. governors in a new poll. Current Gov. Bev Perdue isn't far behind. http://publicpolicypolling.blogspot.com/2009/06/nc-voters-high-on-hunt-down-on-easley.html Jim Hunt, meanwhile, was found to be the most popular. Here's what Jensen said:

Last month PPP asked North Carolina voters who their favorites and least favorites were among the last five Presidents, and this month we took on Governors.
The winner of the least favorite nod, no surprise, is Mike Easley. 45% of respondents chose him, followed by Bev Perdue at 26%.

What is remarkable is the unanimity with which respondents picked Easley- he was the choice of literally every group PPP tracks by ideology, community type, gender, party, race, age, and region. In the Triangle, where his recent troubles have drawn the most media coverage, 60% said he was their least favorite.

Even with two former Republican Governors in the mix Easley finished first among Democrats at 40%, and Bev Perdue came in second with her own party at 20%, another indicator that she has ruffled some feathers with the base in the first months of her administration.

The overwhelming winner as the most popular of the last five Governors is Jim Hunt, who earned 41%, followed by Jim Martin at 21%. Hunt nearly does the opposite of Easley by being named the most popular in every individual group but Martin edged him out by a narrow margin among Republicans (35-34) and voters from metro Charlotte (33-26).

It's a testament to Hunt's across the board appeal that he came out as the most popular among conservatives, and had steady support in the 42-47% range in every region of the state with the exception of Charlotte.

anon at 11:46: it's sad to see that insane comments aren't limited to Franco Ordonez's blog. What a sad commentary on the intellectual capabilities (or lack thereof) of the Charlotte region.

You're probably one of 'those' that admire Jessie Helms too.

If you look at the actual poll you find that less than 800 people were surveyed. This polling company uses incredibly small numbers for these big claims. And Holshouser does worse than Easley at 10%. The corruption that you see today may not have started with Hunt, because the Scotts were governors before he was, but he made an art form enshrined in the Raleigh bureaucracy.

Sort of a goofy survey. From January, 1977 ( 32 plus years ago)
to January, 2009 we only had four
Governors including Jim Hunt for
16 of those years.All sitting Governors were easily re-elected.

How many folks that took the poll where either (1) not born in 1977 or 1969 for that matter (2) Living in another State until recent or (3) have no clue which Governor did what and when.

Plus the power in NC Government is mainly in he State House and Senate...of course how many people can name their State Reps !
