New polling shows Gov. Andy Beshear is enjoying rarified air for a politician with a massive approval rating.
A Morning Consult poll released on Thursday shows Beshear with 59 percent approval rating in Kentucky, placing him amongst the highest for Democratic governors in the country.
“With his strong and steady response to a once-in-a-century pandemic and devastating storms, Gov. Beshear has put people before politics and led us through some of our hardest days,” Kentucky Democratic Party chairman Colmon Elridge said. “The Governor is now leading us into our best days, shattering economic records and building a brighter future for working families across the commonwealth as the best jobs governor in our history. Despite the constant partisan attacks from Frankfort, Kentuckians across the political divide know that Gov. Beshear is working for them, so it’s no surprise almost two-thirds of Kentuckians approve of the job he’s doing.”
Beshear is gearing up for re-election next year. A slew of Republicans are eyeing a run for the the GOP nomination and many will likely soon be announcing their campaigns.
