Poll: Top 10 Best Governors Are All Republicans

Morning Consult’s latest poll of gubernatorial approval ratings was once again a vote of affirmation for Republican governance. Each quarter, the polling firm takes a survey of voters in all 50 states. They released the results of their Q2 2019 survey on Thursday, and 10 Republicans top the list.

The governor with the highest approval rating in the country is a Republican from a blue state – Massachusetts’ Charlie Baker. Seventy-three percent of Bay Staters said they approve of the job Baker is doing. Baker first ascended to the office in 2015 and easily won a second term in 2018.

Baker is followed by another Republican in a blue state, Larry Hogan in Maryland. Hogan earned the approval of 70 percent of Maryland voters. Just 16 percent said they disapproved of the job their second-term governor is doing.

Meanwhile, some of the most unpopular governors in the country are Democrats. Connecticut’s Ned Lamont, who just became governor earlier this year, has the support of just 32 percent of voters. That ties Kentucky’s Matt Bevin for the lowest approval rating in the country.

Other unpopular Democratic governors include Rhode Island’s Gina Raimondo, Oregon’s Kate Brown, and New York’s Andrew Cuomo.

Here’s the list of the top 10 governors in America, per the voters who live in their respective states.

1. Charlie Baker (MA)

2. Larry Hogan (MD)

3. Chris Sununu (NH)

4. Phil Scott (VT)

5. Mark Gordon (WY)

6. Doug Burgum (ND)

7. Asa Hutchinson (AR)

8. Greg Abbott (TX)

9. Bill Lee (TN)

10. Ron DeSantis (FL)
