NC Approval Ratings: Steady is as Steady Goes for President Joe Biden, Governor Roy Cooper, Senator Thom Tillis Over Past Six Months:

SurveyUSA's latest exclusive polling for WRAL-TV in Raleigh shows little change over the past six months in the Net Job Approval Ratings of the President, the Governor, and US Senator Thom Tillis, with just Governor Roy Cooper in positive territory, just as it was in April when SurveyUSA last checked registered voters' temperatures on this topic.

Net Approval is created by subtracting disapproval from approval. Ranked here from highest to lowest:
  • Plus 18: Governor Roy Cooper. 55% approve (20% strongly, 35% somewhat); 37% disapprove (21% somewhat, 16% strongly). Six months ago, Cooper was at Plus 16.
  • Minus 5: Senator Thom Tillis. 37% approve (8% strongly, 29% somewhat); 42% disapprove (23% somewhat, 19% strongly). Tillis was at Minus 4 in April.
  • Minus 12: President Joe Biden. 43% approve (17% strongly, 26% somewhat); 55% disapprove (13% somewhat, 42% strongly). In April, Biden was at Minus 13.
