A newly released poll by Morning Consultant places Gov. Mike Dunleavy as the seventh most popular governor in America.

Conducted April 1 to June 30, the poll asked 380 registered Alaska voters what they thought of Dunleavy. A total of 62% said they approved of his work, while 28% disapproved and 10% said they “don’t know” or “have no opinion.”

While most of the polling from other states had a margin of error of plus or minus 1%, Alaska’s margin of error was plus or minus 5%.

Overall, seven of the 10 most popular governors in the country are Republicans.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who launched his presidential campaign in late May, saw his home-state approval rating fall slightly between the first and second quarters of 2023, the poll stated. Most Florida voters (54%) still approve of his job performance, but those who disapprove increased from 38% to 42%, driven in part by a slight drop in sentiment among Florida Republicans.

For the third quarter running, Vermont Gov. Phil Scott was the most popular U.S. governor, earning approval from 76% of voters. He is followed by Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon (69% approval).

America’s most disliked governor, according to Morning Report’s poll is Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers. The Democrat has a disapproval rating of 44%. He is followed by fellow Democrat Jay Inslee, of Washington, who had a disapproval rating of 43%.

    Well if he’s so popular he should resign and run for president! Don’t let the door hit you on your way out dip***t!

    Am I supposed to trust this data that Morning Consult puts out??? OR, are these results AI-driven to convince us that Dunleavy is working for sovereign Alaskans? According to,
    “Morning Consult is a global decision intelligence company changing how modern leaders make smarter, faster, better decisions. The company pairs its proprietary high-frequency data with applied artificial intelligence to better inform decisions on what people think and how they will act.

    It is remarkable that people are so lazy thinking and memory challenged if you expect them to remember anything of importance within the last 2 years!
    Hey y’all, this governor is the very same one that gave us Ann zinc! Miss death culture queen! There are many dead Alaskans due to them!
    This governor is the very same known as the AOC of the north who sold our state to the carbon nazis!
    Proud of his accomplishments? This governor is an embarrassment!

  • Jack Roberts says:

    How could that be since he’s missing in action most of the time?

  • DaveMaxwell says:

    He’s missing because his conscience is barely alive and he’s very aware the people of this state are sick of him mimicking Biden!

    No one polled from the Alaska businesses he ignored and destroyed while he pampered the big box monopoly during his COVID evil. The untold poison he coerced the sheep to take the agony of the many vaccine injured. Eternity is a long time to explain such a gutless act….. enjoy ….
