No big surprise. I can't still say that Scott Walker is one of the most unpopular Governors in the US, as there are so many. Paul Ryan has never won a statewide election in Wisconsin -- including for Vice President of the United States.

The full poll should be interesting.

Because he's pretty popular...

I am going on margins here. Democrats ahead will of course be shown in red and Republicans ahead will be shown in blue. Saturation of color will so look:

tie white
1-3%       20% saturation
4-7%       40% saturation
8%-20%  60% saturation
over 20% 80% saturation

Qualification: The lowest level of saturation  (20%) now applies for any incumbent Governor whose positive margin of  approval is under 8% but whose approval rating is under 50%. The second-lowest level of saturation (40%) now applies to any Governor whose approval rating is under 50% but whose margin of difference is 8% or higher. No change applies to any Governor whose approval is lower than disapproval. A governor is not in a strong position until he has at least 50% approval. The rationale is to avoid giving a recently-elected Governor credit for a "honeymoon".

Behind, yellow the colors to green for Republicans  and orange for Democrats. Dark shades of orange are really brown.  Ties are yellow.

Governors who die, resign, are defeated in bids for re-election, retire at the end of their terms, or are impeached and removed from office will be whited out. Independent governor or no governor -- white.




Note that the green shades all stand for Republican Governors whose approval ratings are negative. Republican Governors of Maine, Pennsylvania, Michigan, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, and Texas are doing badly. Causes are your guesses.

There's only one state with an orange shade indicating a Democrat doing badly -- Illinois. The Governorship of Illinois is a snake-bitten job.

Really, he is about even -- but just under -- with an approval rating of 48-49. That's not quite as bad as the ratings for some other Republican Governors, but  that's not what I would describe as "pretty popular".

Update -- Sam Brownback is very unpopular in Kansas. I had missed Sean Parnell in Alaska, and he is slightly above water.
