Poll: Governor Rauner 3rd Least Popular Governor in the Nation

Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner is the nation’s third least popular governor, with an approval rating of just 26 percent and a disapproval rating of 60. According to a new poll from Morning Consult, Rauner’s approval rating dropped 10 percentage points in the first three months of this year. While he won the March primary election, it was a narrow victory – 51.6 percent over challenger Rep. Jeanne Ives, who received 48.4 percent. Rauner faces billionaire JB Pritzker in the November general election. Pritzker’s campaign wasted no time using the poll to criticize the governor. “After Bruce Rauner’s disastrous record almost lost him the primary, the most vulnerable incumbent is stumbling through the general election and losing support by the day,” said Pritzker campaign communications director Galia Slayen in a press release. “Illinoisans know they can’t afford another four years of a failed governor that fatally mismanages the Quincy Veterans’ Home and drives the state economy into the ground.” (Morning Consult)
