Study: Greitens ranks as 33rd most popular governor

Posted online
A study by Washington, D.C.-based nonpartisan digital media and survey research company Morning Consult found Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens is the 33rd most popular governor in the United States.

Elected in November, Greitens had an approval rating of 51 percent in the study that interviewed more than 195,000 registered voters April 1-July 10. 

Greitens was 25th among the highest disapproval rates, at 28 percent. Another 22 percent of respondents either didn’t know or had no opinion on Greitens’ leadership of the state. The study included a 2 percent margin of error.

Topping the list was Republican Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, who had a 71 percent approval rating. All of the top 10 governors on the list were Republicans, including Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, who tied for 10th with a 60 percent approval rating. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie had the highest disapproval rate on the list, at 69 percent.
