NEW POLL: Matt Bevin defends title as America’s least popular governor

A new Morning Consult poll finds that Matt Bevin’s dismal popularity with Kentuckians is getting even worse, with a 56% disapproval and 32% approval rating. His disapproval has gotten 4% worse since the beginning of the year, according to the poll.

Bevin continues to be America’s least popular governor. Additionally, the poll finds that Bevin has a net -26% disapproval with independent voters.

Morning Consult’s Eli Yokley noted: “@MattBevin is still America’s least popular governor — and it’s not getting better.”

KDP Spokesperson Marisa McNee added: “Matt Bevin is the most unpopular governor in the country — and he has earned it. Kentuckians are rejecting Matt Bevin’s weak and failed time as governor because he bullies teachers, tries to tear down public education, and supports ripping away protections for people with pre-existing conditions. Working families know they’re falling behind on Bevin’s watch and it’s time for a change.”
