Still more popular than a lame duck appointed by a suspected crook

I guess that's how the Perdue administration could spin the stunning survey released by Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling. Gov. Bev Perdue's approval rating has plunged to 25 percent, lower than any governor or senator PPP has asked voters about -- aside from Roland Burris, the embarrassing placeholder picked by tainted Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (and who's temporarily keeping President Barack Obama's former Senate seat warm).
The poll notes that the biggest drop in her support has come from Democrats and that
Perdue doesn’t exceed 30% approval in any region of the state and women are giving her the same 25% level of support that voters overall are.As Under the Dome notes, the poll was taken after Perdue announced a $1.6-billion tax increase.
Dean Debnam, PPP's president, put it this way: “The big question now is when will Bev Perdue bottom out?”
