According to the Courier-Journal’s latest Bluegrass Poll, Governor Steve Beshear has an approval rating of 60%! Sixty! Only 23% now disapprove of the job the Governor is doing.
Beshear’s approval rating is 17 percentage points higher than former Gov. Ernie Fletcher’s was at this same point in his term.
It’s 7 percentage points lower than former Gov. Paul Patton’s was at this point in his term.
Beshear stumbled during his first legislative session, failing to get some of his priorities, including expanded gambling, through the General Assembly.
Quite a move for Steve Beshear. Quite a move. And that’s coming from us, his chief critic.
