Statewide Poll Shows Governor Approval Rating

A statewide poll out today shows incumbent Governor John Bel Edwards has a sturdy job performance opinion, but if he’s challenged by a popular Republican, he could lose the Governor’s race next year.

The Governor’s approval rating is at 55%. If pitted against U.S. Senator and frequent critic John Kennedy, it’s a 45-44 match. And, if the opponent is Majority Whip Steve Scalise, there’s a 3-point difference. Edwards does the best against Congressman Ralph Abraham, at 51 to 28 percent.

The margin of error is plus or minus 4 points. Mason Dixon is based in Jacksonville Florida, and the firm does not reveal who has paid for the poll.
