Guv The Most Popular of the Unpopular
Gov. Mitch Daniels fares better in public approval ratings than governors in neighboring states—“but that’s not a high bar, given that two of the four rank 49th and 50th nationally” according to Indiana Legislative Insight. The newsletter writes: “The Guv ranks 35th nationally in job approval among all governors, up from 37th in September, with 44% of Hoosier adults approving of the job he is doing as governor, and 50% disapproving (we’re also hearing about another confidential recent survey that shows the Guv’s faves in the 53% neighborhood). The approval number is down by one point from September, while his disapproval number is up”.
