The new poll from Morning Consult shows that Republican governors are in strong positions across the country.
A new poll from Morning Consult will give Republican governors across the country a reason to smile on Tuesday morning: the 11 most popular governors in the U.S. are all Republicans.
Even better for Republicans: four of those 11 governors are leading states that Hillary Clinton won in 2016 (in bold below).
- #1: Charlie Baker (R-MA): 71% approval, 17% disapproval
- #2: Larry Hogan (R-MD): 68% approval, 16% disapproval
- #3: Matt Mead (R-WY): 67% approval, 15% disapproval
- #4: Doug Burgum (R-ND): 66% approval, 15% disapproval
- #5: Dennis Daugaard (R-SD): 65% approval, 25% disapproval
- #6: Kay Ivey (R-AL): 64% approval, 13% disapproval
- #7: Brian Sandoval (R-NV): 62% approval, 21% disapproval
- #8: Phil Scott (R-VT): 62% approval, 23% disapproval
- #9: Gary Herbert (R-UT): 61% approval, 28% disapproval
- #10 (tie): Bill Haslam (R-TN): 60% approval, 23% disapproval
- #10 (tie): Asa Hutchinson (R-AR): 60% approval, 23% disapproval
Three of those four Clinton states – Massachusetts, Maryland, and Vermont – are deep-blue states that have picked Democrats for president for years.
Although no Democratic governors make the top-11 list, two Democratic governors did make it into the bottom-10 list, of least popular governors:
- #41: Gina Raimondo (D-RI): 43% approval, 47% disapproval
- #48: Dan Malloy (D-CT): 29% approval, 64% disapproval
Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) is the least popular governor in the nation, with 69 percent of New Jersey voters disapproving of his job performance.
