MADISON — Governor Scott Walker is among the “least popular” governors in the country — according to MorningConsult.com.
Morning Consult conducted a survey of more than 66,000 voters in all 50 states from January 2016 until early May 2016.
The survey found that Governor Walker is #7 on the list of Top Ten “least popular” governors.
According to Morning Consult, 53% of survey respondents disapprove of Governor Walker’s job performance — compared to 43% of respondents who said they approve of Walker’s job performance.
Morning Consult notes that Governor Walker is one of three governors who opted to run for president — and said that presidential bid resulted in “hardly any change” in Walker’s approval rating.
Eight of the “least popular” governors are Republicans.
Kansas Governor Sam Brownback is the number one “least popular” governor.
Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker is the most popular governor, according to the survey results.
Among all of the nation’s governors, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has experienced the largest drop in support from his constituents as the Republican has struggled to handle the Flint water crisis, according to MorningConsult.com.
