All 50 Governor's approval ratings

Interesting graph. Not sure why Phil Scott (R-VT) is so popular, but at least he's not a Trumper.

1. Kate Brown has done a good job on Covid response overall, but

there is a virulent faction of negativity in Oregon that’s fueled at least two recall efforts.

She’s not particularly dynamic or inspiring through tough times; more of a steady hand on the tiller.

I have great enthusiasm for Nicholas Kristof.

3. Not to mention that Oregon Republicans are totally incompetent

I don't know about Kristof, he may not qualify to run under Oregon law (there's a residency requirement in the state constitution). But Republicans are so screwed up in Oregon that the winner of the Democratic primary might as well start measuring the windows at Mahonia Hall for new curtains.

The Republicans that is, Kevin Rennie can go shit in his hat.

10. Really? When I was working I used to read Kevin Rennie's blog.

He did have some insider gossip about that Waterbury prosecutor scandal. (I have some insider gossip on that one myself). But I haven't read it in years. Does he have a column too?
I'm sure Ned will survive. Kind of a model on how to do Covid.

4. J.B. Pritzker of Illinois deserves to be a lot higher than 51%.

But all the Trumpsters, antivaxxers, and maskholes in the red areas absolutely HATE the covid mask mandates that he's enacted, even though they've saved untold numbers of lives. They also don't like the fact that he recently signed an anendment removing ‘Conscience' as a basis for resisting covid vaccine mandates. So here we are. Idiots.

What's even more messed up is that he's right between Abbott (50%) and DeSantis (52%), two of the worst governors in the country, especially where their covid response is concerned. And SD'S Kristi Noem, the superspreader queen (remember Sturgis?) got 58%. WTAF.

5. I thought Wolf was more popular

Not sure why he’s declined as he hasn’t pushed many Covid restrictions lately. I for one wish he would be more proactive on Covid, but he’s a good governor.

6. The fact that there's D governors below DeSantis is scary. Lots of stupid people

In this country.

8. Does this confirm anything besides the fact that Uglicans follow in lockstep ...

... whatever their leaders tell them ?

Dems can't make themselves popular by beating up on the disadvantaged, but it works magic for Uglicans.

12. While not absolute, the general trend seems to be

The bigger—and thus more diverse—your state, the less popular your governor will be. There sre exceptions, but that seems to be the general trend. I’m not surprised.

14. Tate Reeves (R--Miss.) is #43.

He has steered a middle course through the pandemic, and it's earned him few friends from either side. He put us under a mask mandate last year, but then it ended and he hasn't done much of anything since. While it might have saved lives to extend the mandate this year, he has left it up to localities to do as they will.

Honestly, people probably would have defied it if he had put up another mandate, so I guess he didn't want to have the kind of backlash they've had in places like Idaho. And at least he hasn't pushed for some of the ignorant legislation that we've seen from Republicans in Florida and Texas. So while I wish we had someone more inspiring, I give him a passing grade for not being as regressive as some.

15. Illinois here...

J.B. Pritzker has done an EXCELLENT 5 STAR job here. If you don't like the work so far, you're a moaran, pure and sinmple. Case in point Pre Pritzker election I was paying $455 a month for insulin. J.B. powered thru a law that capped my expense at $35 a month ( after my insurance).
