New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is now the most unpopular governor in America, according to a new poll by Morning Consult. Since September, when he was still Donald Trump's toady, Christie has picked up 3 percentage points in the unpopularity department. His disapproval rating now stands at 71%, with only a 25% approval rating.
According to Business Insider:
It's the continuation of a dismal polling trend for Christie, who found himself embroiled in the Bridgegate scandal during his second term in office, which ends early next year. In June, a Monmouth University poll found Christie's approval rating reaching an all-time low, standing at a dreadful 27%. A total of 63% of respondents disapproved of the job the governor is performing...
After Christie, Brownback, and Malloy, the list of the top five most unpopular governors is rounded out by Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder and Alaska Gov. Bill Walker. Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker is the most liked in the country, followed by Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, Vermont Gov. Phil Scott, and South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard.
Morning Consult polled more than 85,000 registered voters between January and March for the survey.
