According to new polling from Morning Consult, North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum is America’s 5th most popular governor.

Interestingly, every person in the top ten of Morning Consult’s gubernatorial polling is a Republican. Though it’s worth noting that all but two of the governors in the bottom ten are Republicans too.

Burgum’s approval has actually fallen off a bit since April. Back then Burgum, who was just wrapping up his first legislative session and was fresh off handling the successful shutdown of the violent #NoDAPL protests, was at a 69 percent approval rating good for 3rd highest in the nation.

Interestingly, Burgum’s disapproval hasn’t changed much. It was 16 percent back in April and 17 percent in this most recent polling.

Regardless, it’s clear that Governor Burgum continues to enjoy strong approval from voters.
