A new High Point University poll finds widespread dissatisfaction with major elected officials. 

North Carolina will have a high-profile election next year with a presidential, senate and governor's seat on the ballot. High Point's poll shows some potential risks for incumbents.

President Donald Trump's approval rating was 42 percent, but half the North Carolinians surveyed said they disapproved of the job Trump is doing.

Gov. Roy Cooper's approval wasn't much higher (43 percent), but more people favored the job he's doing than disapproved. 

Senator Thom Tillis had the lowest approval rating at 27 percent. Democrats consider him vulnerable in next year's election, and he also faces a GOP primary challenge from businessman Garland Tucker III.

North Carolinians continued to hold the US Congress in low regard, with an approval rating of only 19 percent.
