Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker tops out the most popular governors list with 71% approval, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is losing the contest with 69% disapproval, according to Morning Consult's Governor Approval Rankings.

Think about it this way:

  • The ten least popular governors have disapproval ratings worse than Trump's disapproval rating, which stands at 46%, per WSJ/NBC. Based on the Trump disapproval rating the ABC/WaPo poll found, at 58%, only three governors have disapproval ratings worse than Trump.
  • All of the most popular governors are Republicans...
  • ...And seven of the ten least popular governors are also Republicans.
