Katie Hobbs is wildly unpopular. Within the lead-up to the 2022 midterm elections, she was trailing Trump-endorsed Kari Lake by double digits days earlier than voters took to the polls. Actually, the 4 statewide Trump endorsed candidates led or had been at the very least even within the polls previous to November eighth.
Then the Election Day debacle took its course and we all know how that turned out. Election Day voters that skew closely Republican had been disenfranchised when strains wrapped round buildings, parking heaps overflowing with vehicles, and large discrepancies with the Runbeck Sentio Poll On Demand printers printing 19″ ballots that would not be correctly scanned.
It’s not wanting good for “Governor” Hobbs within the subsequent polls, both. A Morning Seek the advice of ballot locations Hobbs within the backside three amongst all 50 governors. Solely Gov. Jim Pillen of Nebraska and Gov. Tina Kotek of Oregon rank decrease. It’s value noting that Kotek was an 8 level underdog (odds, not polls) to Christine Drazan within the 2022 election simply 4 days previous to November eighth, however by some means pulled off a victory within the “Beaver State”.
In keeping with the brand new Morning Seek the advice of ballot, Hobbs’ approval ranking is simply 47%.
Republicans maintain 7 of the ten prime spots with Vermont’s Phil Scott getting the best marks with a 78% approval ranking.
As if the Morning Seek the advice of ballot wasn’t sufficient, social media tells the identical story: whereas Kari Lake simply surpassed 1,000,000 followers on Twitter and over 600,000 on Fact Social, her opponent “Governor” Katie Hobbs is hovering round 56,000 in a state with 7.55 million folks. Lake has 20 instances the next on Twitter and, nicely, Hobbs doesn’t have a presence on Fact Social.
Congratulations to @KariLake for surpassing 1 Million followers! Along with your 600k+ on Fact.
And congrats to “Governor” Hobbs for passing, ummm, 56,000. 🙄 and 0 on Fact. pic.twitter.com/iIxtdOUfeO
