Kay Ivey Remains Popular Governor

Kay Ivey remains one of the most popular governors in the country.

The polling shows 61% of respondents approved of the job Ivey was doing compared to 33% who did not. That put Ivey just ahead of Connecticut Democratic Gov. Ned Lamont (61% approval vs. 34% disapproval) and behind Arkansas Republican Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders (61% vs. 27% disapproval.)

Ivey, who is serving her second full term, has consistently been ranked among the top 10 in Morning Consult polling. The poll was conducted Jan. 1-March 31 with a representative sample of registered voters in each state with a margin of error of plus/minus 1-6 percentage points.

The most popular governors were Phill Scott, R-Vermont (78% approval vs. 14% disapproval); Mark Gordon, R-Wyoming, (67% approval vs. 24% disapproval); and Chris Sununu, R-New Hampshire (66% approval vs. 29% disapproval.)

The governor with the highest disapproval ratings were Tina Kotek, D-Oregon (42% disapproval vs. 39% approval) Jim Pillen, R-Nebraska (45% disapproval vs. 30% approval) and Katie Hobbs, D-Arizona, (47% disapproval vs. 36% approval).

The same Morning Consult poll shows 66% of respondents in Alabama disapproved of the job President Joe Biden is doing compared to 31% who approved.

Approval ratings for Alabama’s two Republican Senators – Tommy Tuberville and Katie Britt – are much higher. Of those polled, 50% approved of Tuberville’s performance with 32% disapproving and 18% uncertain. Britt’s approval rating was 49% with disapproval at 22% with 29% uncertain on the performance for Alabama’s freshman Senator.
