How’s She Doing?

Posted by on December 20 at 13:33 PM

Not so good. Washington’s governor Christine Gregoire ranks 39th in an approval ratings for all 50 U.S. governors.

Look at the tracking, Dan. She's moving the right direction, and favorability drops naturally (she's lost a whole point) when nothing's going on. And there's a whole lot of nothing from her office right now.

Given where she started, these are good numbers, and her performance will make or break the return to 50%+. You can't expect a miracle after the fight last year. Once the legislature's in session and then campaigns start in the fall, watch for her numbers to keep going up.

Geez, Dan, always bringing up the negative. Here's a positive: the WaPo political blogger doesn't list Gregoire in his top then of vulnerable or open governorships. And the Gov. is proving to be what Locke only gave lip service to: She is our Education Governor.
