Morning Consult poll: Pritzker the 8th least popular governor
Wednesday, Oct 23, 2019
* With all the usual caveats about Morning Consult’s opaque methodology, the company’s latest poll has Gov. Pritzker with a 43 percent job approval rating and a 42 percent disapproval rating. 14 percent are undecided.
He’s +47 with Democrats and -56 with Republicans, which is far worse (and probably more realistic) than the recent poll for Public Radio which had him at -36 with GOP respondents. That poll had his approval/disapproval rating at 59/41.
The Morning Consult poll taken during the first quarter of the year had Pritzker at 40/29, so his disapproval rating has climbed considerably since then. The governor was at 44/35 in second-quarter polling.
The company is claiming a margin of error of +/- 1 percent for 21,533 registered Illinois voters between July 1 and September 30.
