Morning Consult released their quarterly approval ratings for all 50 U.S. governors, and once again Governor Andy Beshear has the highest approval rating among Democrat governors, and the 7th-highest approval rating among all governors.

Especially interesting, considering that 2023 is an election year for statewide offices, including governor, is Beshear’s approval rating among Republican voters. As of this poll, it is actually the highest it has been in the past two years.

The article at Morning Consult lists all governors across the nation along with their approval and disapproval ratings. It also points out some interesting data points for the future, including the fact that West Virginia governor, Republican Jim Justice, has a higher approval rating than Democratic WVa senator Joe Manchin.

A very light news day, with most of the focus on the arrest of the golfer at the PGA last week. Of note, though, is Heather Cox Richardson’s summary of President Biden’s commencement speech at Morehouse.
