Americans have spoken. While we often focus on national political figures — and Republicans typically come out on top in terms of approval ratings — it’s important to remember that the GOP is the most popular party at the state level too. In fact, 9 out of the top 10 governors are Republicans, according to a new poll that focuses on approval ratings.
A new Morning Consult poll found that of the top 10 governors, 9 are Republicans while only one is a Democrat. The most popular governor in the country, Republican Phil Scott of Vermont, has an astounding 79 percent approval rating. In fact, he’s extremely popular with Democrats, 88 percent of whom say they approve of his leadership.
Republicans Charlie Baker (Mass) and Larry Hogan (Maryland) also top the list at 72 percent and 70 percent approval ratings, respectively. The first time we see a “D” is in 7th place, with Connecticut’s Ned Lamont just behind West Virginia’s Republican governor and barely edging out Alabama Republican Kay Ivey and Ohio’s Mike DeWine.
A Democrat doesn’t even resurface until 14th place. This list looks bad for leftists, but it gets worse for them. President* Biden’s current approval rating is 41-42 percent. If he was a governor, he wouldn’t even appear on this list, which bottoms out with Oregon Democrat governor Kate Brown.
Biden’s performance is so bad that 61 percent of Democrats want him to step aside so someone else can run in 2024. Joe Biden is a disaster. He has caused the worst border crisis our country has ever seen. COVID continues to run rampant. Our economy in in the proverbial commode, jobs numbers are awful, and then there was the complete and utter crapstorm in Afghanistan. Joe Biden cannot be trusted to pilot this ship any longer. He must be relieved of command as soon as possible — for the good of our country.
