Gov. John Bel Edwards is highest-ranked Democratic governor in new national poll

Mid-way through his first term, Gov. John Bel Edwards remains favorable among more than half of the state's voting population, according to findings of a new national poll released this week.

Morning Consult, a media and technology company that regularly ranks governors based on polling in all 50 states, found in its latest survey that Edwards is tied for the 14th most favorable ranking with Georgia's Republican Gov. Nathan Deal.

Fifty-six percent of respondents rated Edwards favorably, while 27 percent had an unfavorable view of the first-term governor. Eighteen percent were undecided.

The latest favorability poll comes just over two years since Edwards, the only governor in the Deep South who is a Democrat, took the oath of office in January 2016. He is the most favorably ranked Democrat in the latest survey's findings.

2. The OP posted the headline correctly

 

Lots of big things to worry about, instead of small semantics. .

5. I love what you do w/these news articles....I appreciate them.

I was not picking on you. The original article headline did have the Repube slam 'Democrat' as adjective. Thanks for changing it.

7. It's cool with me.

What is odd is that The Advocate has some of the longest, wordiest headlines in the business so dropping the "ic" from Democratic really is a subliminal slam. I guess those extra pixels must have cost too much.

4. Thank you!

There is little to no buzz at all about Gov. Edwards. I know that Louisiana politics are not the first thing most liberals think about. However in a world where we need to make some serious state gains, it could be an important case study for our progress. The first thing he did as governor was to participate in Medicaid expansion. GEAUX Gov.Edwards!
