Gov. Kay Ivey’s approval third-highest in the country at 67 percent, new poll shows

A new series of rankings shows that Gov. Kay Ivey is the country’s third-most popular governor, at 67 percent approval.

According to Morning Consult, only three percentage points separate Ivey from being number one. The “most popular” title is currently held by Charlie Baker, the Republican governor of Massachusetts.

Republican Gov. Larry Hogan of Maryland currently polls at 68 percent approval, making him the second-most popular.

All governors ranking in the top ten of Morning Consult’s findings are Republicans. Four of those governors lead states that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016, including Govs. Baker and Hogan.

Ivey has demonstrated her popularity among Alabama voters time and time again. In the June Republican primary, she beat her three competitors with 56 percent of the vote.

In Morning Consult’s first quarter approval poll, Ivey ranked at 64 percent approval.
