A High Point University poll finds that President Donald Trump’s approval rating among North Carolinians hasn’t changed much in the wake of the Mueller report.

The survey found Trump’s approval rating at 40 percent, while 52 percent of respondents say they disapprove of how he’s doing as president.

Those numbers are almost the same as results of High Point’s poll from the same time last year.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report was delivered March 22. The survey began a week later.

Gov. Roy Cooper’s approval rating was also about 40 percent, but that was higher than those expressing disapproval. Almost 30 percent of respondents didn’t offer an opinion on how the governor is doing.
