After the governor signed abortion legislation into law, only 27 percent of voters said he kept his campaign promise to not add further restrictions on abortions. Fifty percent of voters however said the governor broke his promise.

Since the abortion and voter ID bills were passed and signed by the governor, North Carolina has been in the national spotlight and criticized by comedians like Stephen Colbert of Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report" and John Oliver, who filled in for Jon Stewart on "The Daily Show."

PPP reports that 50 percent of voters feel the General Assembly is to blame for North Carolina's national embarrassment.

Voters said that if there was an election for the legislature today, they would vote Democratic by a 50/41 margin.
