Yeah he shouldn't be on this list. He lost by basically the same margin as Romney in 2012. Just a tad bit worse. Nothing thats would be a despised governor.

Allen was deeply despised by African Americans & other minorities for his policies such as Confederate History Month, removing minority appointees of Wilder, etc.,

LePage should be one of the most despised former governors but sadly I have a feeling he is not...

As someone who frequents ME-2, he definitely still has a good-sized base there, far bigger than whatever Moody has/had.

Since Blagojevich is leading, who would win a hypothetical state-wide race in Illinois between Blago and Alan Keyes?

Not sure who voted for Bob Taft, he's been completely rehabilitated.

Voted LePage since he's basically Trump in the Flesh. Calling someone a c*cks*cker while in office and then writing STOLEN ELECTION on Gorgeous Jared Golden's certificate of election was just beyond deplorable and very unbecoming for a Governor.

Blagojevich is obviously the worst Democratic Governor. Poor Illinois, red or blue it doesn't matter in the end they always get screwed.

I just had to vote Christie, even though LePage, Brownback and Bob Taft are all strong contenders for this title

The pipes, the pipes are calling! From glen to glen and down the mountainside. The summers gone and all the leaves are falling. Itís you itís you who must go and I must bide. But come ye back when summers in the meadow! Or when the valleys white and washed with snow! Yes Iíll be here in sunshine or in shadow, oh Ned Lamont oh Ned Lamont we love you so!

I voted Brownback though. I know several people - a few of whom voted for Trump - who think Blago was railroaded for going against Bank of America. Everyone knows heís guilty as hell of course, they just thought he was selectively punished.

George Allen was so unpopular as a Governor that he unseated an incumbent Democratic Senator in the state he was Governor of

And then lost the two subsequent elections

And then the thread title should be changed since it is despised Governors and not politicians generally. Allen was popular as Governor and a majority liked him for many years after he was Governor. It was his actions as Senator and the shift in the state demographics that changed that.

Even when you consider the fact that his policies alienated a chunk of the electorate, that doesn't put him on the level of "Most deeply despised 'Governor" when you have Governors who went to prison, Governors who had approval ratings in the teens who are not on this list.


Edit: Just for the record I cannot stand George Allen or his confederate fanboyism and this dates back all the way to when he was supposed to be the Conservative champion in the 2008 Primaries, so about 2005.

Blago's gotta be up there because of how egregious his corruption was. Probably also Greitens, but his term was so short that it barely counts. 

Illinois is so accustomed to corrupt governors going to jail that I think they just shrug and have an eye-rolling "Oh, you!" attitude about Blago.

Post-Hurricane Irma approval aside, Rick Scott's exclusion from this list is blatantly sad.

Democrat: Blagojevich

Republican: Christie

Interestingly, both are Trump pals.
