Charlie Baker Is No Longer America's Most Popular Governor, Poll Shows

BOSTON (CBS) – Charlie Baker can't claim the title of the country's most-liked governor anymore, according to a new poll.

The Massachusetts Republican comes in third in the latest Morning Consult survey, just behind No. 1 Gov. Dennis Daugaard of South Dakota and Larry Hogan of Maryland.

To be clear, Baker's popularity in the Bay State is still sky high, with an approval rating of 70 percent and 18 percent disapproving. That's down just slightly from Morning Consult's previous poll of governors in May, which had Baker in first at 72 percent and 16 percent, respectively.

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is once again the least popular governor in the country, with a disapproval rating of 71 percent.

Two New England governors, Maine's Paul LePage and Rhode Island's Gina Raimondo, are also on the list of the 10 least-liked state executives.
