KY-Gov: Morning Consult Confirms Matt Bevin (R) Is America's Most Unpopular Governor

Yep, he really does suck:

Kentucky's Matt Bevin hasn't won many popularity contests after being elected governor in 2015.

His publicized fights with the teacher's unions over pensions and with people on social media has led to polls consistently ranking him as one of the least popular governors in the country.

Bevin for the first time snagged the bottom spot Thursday morning in a poll released by Morning Consult, a non-partisan polling firm based in Washington, D.C.

The poll gives Democrats hope since Kentucky's Republican governor faces re-election campaign this year. Democrats will pick their candidate in a May 21 primary.

Kentucky Democrats in the past 20 years have lost both houses of the state legislature and all but one statewide office in Kentucky.

Morning Consult's poll of Kentucky voters showed 33 percent approved of Bevin while 52 percent didn't. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus one percent.

Here’s some more context:

The rankings do not include information about why survey respondents approve or disapprove, but the origins of Bevin’s unpopularity might include his recent feuds with:

And controversial comments about weather-related school closings and vaccination .

He’s not alone as an unpopular Kentucky politician, although at least Mike Pence seems to like him. Morning Consult’s data listed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a prominent supporter of Trump administration policy goals such as healthcare and tax overhaul, as the 94th most popular senator out of 100.
