House Bill 2 might be North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory's undoing.

According to a Public Policy Polling (PPP) released Wednesday, McCrory trails his Democratic rival, Roy Cooper, the state's attorney general, by 6 percentage points. Cooper picks up another percentage point when undecideds are asked to choose between Cooper and McCrory.

McCrory's popularity – currently at 41% – has been under water for the last 39 months in a row.

When asked about House Bill 2, the controversial law signed by McCrory that limits LGBT protections and prohibits transgender people from using the bathroom of their choice in government buildings and schools, 41% of voters say his handling of the issue makes them less inclined to support him.

Only 39% of voters approve of how he's handled the issue, to 49% who disapprove.

“McCrory's taken a direct hit thanks to HB2,” PPP's Tom Jensen wrote in releasing the results.

“There may be one simple reason HB2 is so unpopular – it's a bill targeting LGBT people, yet only 19% of North Carolinians say they have a negative opinion of LGBT people, to 47% with a positive one and 34% who are indifferent. A bill cutting the rights of a group of people that only a small slice of the electorate has a problem with isn't going to be very popular,” Jensen added.
