America’s Most and Least Popular Governors

From Wall Street 24/7, February 5, 2020

U.S. governors are the most powerful elected officials in state government. Occupying their state’s most high-profile position and representing constituencies that can include a broad range of public interests and political values, they are subject to regular scrutiny.

As is true for every politician voted into office across all levels of government, approval ratings are very important to governors — both for political clout and, for those who are up for re-election, job security.

24/7 Wall St. reviewed public opinion data from research company Morning Consult to rank America’s governors by popularity. Governor approval ratings are based on survey data collected during the fourth quarter of 2019 and range from 32% to 69%.

(Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear and Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves were not included on this list, because they assumed office after the survey was conducted.)

48. Gov. David Ige (D) of Hawaii
> Approval: 32%
> Disapproval: 58% (the highest)
> Don’t know: 11% (5th lowest)
> In office since: Dec. 1, 2014
> Hawaii could run on only rainy day funds in FY 2018 for: 53 days (14th most)
> Rainy day fund: $1.13 billion (21st largest)
> Dec. 2019 unemployment rate: 2.6% (8th lowest)
