New approval numbers are out comparing the most and least popular governors around the country. The Morning Consults Governor Approval Rankings show Governor Bruce Rauner near the bottom of the list.
Rauner ranks fifth worst as most voters say they disapprove of his performance over the last two years in office. The survey asked more than 250,000 registered voters nationwide.
With his re-election underway inching closer to 2018, he will want to change some minds. The survey shows Rauner suffered a 16-point net loss, with 30% of voters approving of his performance and 55% giving him the thumb’s down.
People were surveyed from July to September, so even after the state passed a budget, many are still not pleased with how Rauner continues to govern.
July through September? That makes for some pretty old results.
More info is here. It’s difficult to figure out exactly what this firm’s methodology is, so I’d advise a bit of caution.
