High Point Univ. poll shows low support for Hagan

Posted: Updated:
HIGH POINT, N.C. -

A new poll by High Point University says 42 percent of North Carolina residents approve of President Barack Obama's job performance, compared to  38 percent for Gov. Pat McCrory.

But the poll has some low numbers for U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan, who is seeking re-election in 2014. Only 32 percent of those who responded approved of Hagan's performance.

Only 19 percent of those who responded said Hagan should be re-elected, while 56 percent said someone else should be elected.

Hagan, a Democrat from Greensboro, was first selected in 2008, when she beat Elizabeth Dole.

North Carolina House Speaker Thom Tillis has already announced he will run for Senate. Dr. Greg Brannon of Cary, Charlotte pastor Mark Harris and nurse practitioner Heather Grant of Wilkesboro are other interested Republicans.

Harris announced his official entry into the race Tuesday.

    Kay Hagan's self-identification as a middle-of-the-road U.S. senator who fights for the middle class, among other groups, and responds effectively to constituent requests may sound trite coming from any politician's mouth seeking re-election.
