New polling data shows Gov. Pat McCrory is gaining ground in his job approval rating. Host Donna Martinez talks with Carolina Journal Managing Editor Rick Henderson about the poll of registered voters conducted by the Civitas Institute, which gives the governor a 53 percent job approval rating. The poll also shows President Obama continues to have difficulty with North Carolinians, with his approval at just 46 percent. The two also discuss the potential matchup between McCrory and Democratic Attorney General Roy Cooper, who continues to speak out against Republican policies with Democratic groups, as well as the potential impact of a safe race for U.S. Senate Richard Burr on the gubernatorial outcome.  Then we hear from 2nd District Congresswoman Renee Ellmers about bipartisanship in the U.S. Congress and her view of the Affordable Care Act. That’s followed by Martinez’ discussion with national pollster Kellyanne Conway. They talk about voter trends Conway is finding in her focus groups, Sen. Hillary Clinton’s dominance of the Democratic Party’s side of the contest, the wide open field on the Republican side, and the role women and “older young people” will play in the presidential race.
