Gov. Chris Sununu has spent the past seven months in office making major changes to New Hampshire with bills he recently signed — including full-day kindergarten and the domicile voting bill. Even with people finding controversy in some of the changes made, over half of Granite Staters approve of Sununu.
Morning Consult surveyed 195,704 registered U.S. voters from April 1 through July 10 to determine the governor's approval rankings.
Sununu ranked toward the middle of the pack, coming in as the 19th most approved governor with a 57 percent approval rating. According to the poll, 23 percent of constituents disapprove of Sununu, while 21 percent have no opinion. His approval ranking had a three percentage margin of error.
The governor with the highest approval rate holds office in New Hampshire's neighboring state of Massachusetts. Seventy-one percent of those surveyed approved of Charlie Baker, with a two percentage margin of error.
According to the Morning Consult, the Top 10 highest approved governors all are republicans. The 10 governors with the highest disapproval rating vary in political parties with seven republicans, two democrats and one independent.
The most disapproved governor in the country is Chris Christie with a one percentage margin of error, the poll showed. Roughly seven in 10 (69 percent) of New Jersey residents expressed their disapproval of Christie, who recently raised anger after visiting a beach closed to the public as a result of an ongoing state government shutdown.
