High Point, NC -- Forty-six percent of registered voters in North Carolina say they approve of President Obama's job performance, according to a new High Point University poll.

On the other hand, the poll showed 48 percent disapprove of the job he's done.

Obama's approval rating in the state remained basically unchanged from the October 2012 poll, but only 47 percent of registered voters disapproved of the president then.

"This is not a particularly low rating," said HPU Poll director Dr. Martin Kifer. "But it does not indicate a new Honeymoon period with North Carolina voters for the beginning of the president's second term."

The state's voters gave newly inaugurated Gov. Pat McCrory a 44-percent approval rating, with only 14 percent expressing disapproval and 42 percent failing to express an opinion.

Sixty-three percent of registered North Carolina voters said they see the country as being on the "wrong track," while only 29 percent said the country was headed in the "right direction."

The biggest loser in the most recent poll was Congress. Only 11 percent of the voters polled said they approved of the job Congress is doing.
