Let’s look at two sets of numbers important to Governor Perdue: her budget and her polls.
Her proposed budget is a solid response to a stinky mess. She spread around the pain. And she still made important investments in economic development, education and human services.
She deserves credit for keeping the state on track in tough times.
As for polls, a radio interviewer tried this week to get me to echo the chorus of gloom about Perdue’s drop in Public Policy Polling’s surveys.
I balked. After all, her PPP numbers are no worse than Richard Burr’s. Big difference: Perdue’s not up for reelection this year.
And a Rasmussen poll this week looked even better for her: 45 percent approval.
The fact is, most every governor across the country has bad poll numbers. They’re governing in a toxic climate: bad economy, bad budgets and voters in a bad mood.
Perdue’s reelection campaign is a long way away, and her budget should give Democrats heart – and hope for the future.

I am pretty savvy on the Internet. You say that "The fact is, most every governor across the country has bad poll numbers. They’re governing in a toxic climate: bad economy, bad budgets and voters in a bad mood".

Gary, if you're reading...can ya please give us a ligitimate link to show what you're saying here please? I just can't find something anywhere that says that. And, Puuuullllease don't show some left-wing pundit saying that for some kind of legitimacy on it, okay?

Got a link? If not, guess it is just an opinion presented as some kind of truth.

I'll wait for that link of some ligitimate source.
