All 10 of America’s Most Popular Govs are Republicans (Again!)

Déjà vu? NTK Network wrote almost the same story in October 2017, but it's still true: all 10 of the nation's most popular governors are Republicans.

All 10 of America’s Most Popular Govs are Republicans (Again!)

The 10 most popular governors in America are all Republicans, according to survey results released Thursday by Morning Consult.

NTK Network wrote nearly that exact same sentence in October 2017. We’re writing it again, though, because a new Morning Consult poll released on Thursday found the same results.

Gov. Charlie Baker (R-MA) is once again the nation’s most popular governor, with a 69-percent approval rating. Less than two in 10 Massachusetts voters disapprove of Baker. That’s good news for Baker, who’s up for re-election in 2018.

Gov. Larry Hogan (R-MD) is once again the nation’s second-most popular governor, with a 66-percent approval rating. Less than two in 10 Maryland voters disapprove of Hogan. Good news for Hogan, who is also up for re-election in 2018.

Also in the top 10 are four other governors up for re-election in 2018: Kay Ivey (R-AL), Phil Scott (R-VT), Asa Hutchinson (R-AR), and Greg Abbott (R-TX).

In a sign that Republican governors’ performance is about results, and not just party affiliation, four of the top 10 governors are in states that Hillary Clinton won in 2016: Baker (Massachusetts), Hogan (Maryland), Scott (Vermont), and Brian Sandoval (R-NV).
