A new CNN/ORC poll shows that President Donald Trump’s approval rating is at an all-time high in the battleground state of North Carolina, and even with the state’s GOP leaders in disarray, the President still enjoys a sizable lead in the state.
The CNN poll found that just over two-thirds of registered voters across North Carolina now view Trump favorably, and the President’s approval ratings in the Tar Heel State have soared since his inauguration.
More than 70% of those surveyed approve of the job Trump is doing as president, and 56% say the country is headed in the right direction.
That’s up from 52% in April, and is higher than any other poll that has been conducted in North Carolina since January.
That approval rating could be boosted if Trump’s Cabinet picks continue to improve, as they have in the first three months of the Trump presidency.
The poll also found that nearly two-in-three voters said the federal government is doing a good job protecting the people of North Carolinians from President Donald Trumps attacks on their health care and other public services.
Trump has also continued to gain support among Democrats, and that has boosted his approval rating among Democrats as well.
The President has a 52%-44% approval rating in North Carolinas, and he has gained 14 points since April, when he had a 53%-43% approval and a 44%-29% disapproval rating.
A CNN/ORS poll released on Monday found that while the President has seen his support among white voters, a majority of voters in the country’s largest city of Charlotte say they disapprove of his handling of the situation in North Korea.
Just over half of voters (52%) say they approve of how Trump is handling North Korea, with another 34% saying they disapprove.
That number has stayed fairly steady since January, when a majority said they disapproved.
The North Korean government has threatened to launch more ballistic missiles and has been publicly flaunting its nuclear capabilities.
The latest CNN poll was conducted from May 2-5 with 1,049 adults nationwide questioned by telephone.
The margin of sampling error is plus or minus 3.9 percentage points.
