Mass.gov, Maryland.gov, Alabama.gov

Morning Consult revealed a new report showing that the Republican Party dominated the rankings of governor approval ratings, continuing for the seventh quarter in a row.

Registered voters across the U.S. took the survey of Morning Consult’s Governor Approval Rankings.

Six of the top 10 governors are looking toward re-election during the upcoming gubernatorial elections on November 6 — including Gov. Charlie Baker (R-Mass.) and Gov. Larry Hogan (R-Md.), who are the top two in the chart.

Earning the top spot, 70 percent of registered voters in Massachusetts approved of Baker, while only 17 percent disapproved.

Below is the approval ranking:

The others who are seeking re-election include Govs. Kay Ivey (R-Ala.), Chris Sununu (R-N.H.), Asa Hutchinson (R-Ark.), and Greg Abbott (R-Texas).

The approval vs. disapproval; unaccounted were undecided:

  • Charlie Baker (R-Mass.) — Approve: 70 percent, Disapprove: 17 percent
  • Larry Hogan (R-Md.) — Approve: 67 percent, Disapprove: 17 percent
  • Kay Ivey (R-Ala.) — Approve: 65 percent, Disapprove: 18 percent
  • Chris Sununu (R-N.H.) — Approve: 60 percent, Disapprove: 24 percent
  • Dennis Daugaard (R-S.D.) — Approve: 59 percent, Disapprove: 27 percent
  • Asa Hutchinson (R-Ark.) — Approve: 58 percent, Disapprove: 26 percent
  • Greg Abbott (R-Texas)— Approve: 57 percent, Disapprove: 26 percent
  • Brian Sandoval (R-Nev.) — Approve: 56 percent, Disapprove: 23 percent
  • Nathan Deal (R-Ga.) — Approve: 56 percent, Disapprove: 24 percent
  • Gary Herbert (R-Utah) — Approve: 56 percent, Disapprove: 26 percent

The state of Massachusetts, where Baker holds as a favorable Republican, has been a blue state where former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton won during the 2016 presidential election.

A Massachusetts statewide poll revealed in May that Baker was favorable among both Democratic and Republican registered voters.

He was 65 percent favorable among Democrats and 64 percent favorable among Republicans.

Republicans currently hold 33 of the governorships in the country.

  1. See now this is a non biased report.

    It is weird because republicans made up 7 of the 10 worst rated governors in the country as well – either love them or hate them? Obviously tons of room for improvement from the Democrats, but that is not surprising – I’d be bummed if the reason some people voted lower in approval is because they were not progressive enough.

  2. Just because you are popular does NOT mean that you are a good politician or that you have good ideas. (I mean, just take Trump, for example. Popular but with HORRIBLE policies!) You might have that on your side, but it proves NOTHING.

  3. And just because these Governors and Trump’s policies don’t meet the approval of some internet rando, dumbfuck like IsStupid, doesn’t mean they’re bad policies or bad leaders. In fact, it’s very likely that they’re outstanding leaders with policies that have made a significant difference!!

    • Mary Fallin of Oklahoma 75% disapproval and 17% approval.
      Bruce Rauner of Illinois 62% disapproval and 25% approval
      Matt Bevin of Kentucky 55% disapproval and 30% approval
      Paul LePage of Maine 54% disapproval and 40% approval
      Susana Martinez of NM 54% disapproval and 36% approval
      Rick Snyder of Michigan 50% disapproval and 35% approval
      Scott Walker of Wisconsin 50% disapproval and 42% approval.

    • I do not care what the party affiliation of the person. The leadership qualities remain the same. Does a good leader unite or divide the country? Does an effective leader work with both sides of the issues? Does a good leader have the integrity to be trusted that what he/she says is based on facts and reality? Does a good leader promote the founding principles of America? Does a good leader represent the US in a positive light on the world stage? Does a good leader possess and demonstrate the qualities you would want your children to emulate? Does a good leader know the difference between campaigning and governing? Does a good leader posses the emotional maturity to admit mistakes and take responsibility for them? Those are the questions a voter should ask BEFORE they cast their ballot.

      • the Republicans and President Trump beg the Democrats every day to work with them and work together it’s the Democrats who have stood up against America it is the Democrats who turned into terrorist who resist everything the Democrats only Screech Civil War everyday they are warmongers and terrorist and they need to be stopped physically if need be
