CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV)- A new Public Policy Polling survey of Mecklenburg County voters finds that Commission Chair Pat Cotham is quite popular with voters in the county, and that they support the board's decision to end County Manager Harry Jones' employment last week.
The PPP Poll was released on Thursday and interviewed the respondents on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Key findings from the poll include:
-46% percent of voters in the county approve of the job Cotham is doing to just 26 percent who disapprove. Cotham is drawing support across party lines for her leadership. Democrats approve of her by a 50/23 margin, independents do so by a 43/29 spread, and Republicans do 42/28. Cotham has solid personal favorability numbers as well at 42/25.
