Is Gov. Pat Quinn running for re-election? "Of course," Quinn said with a giggle. "I'm the governor. We don't plan to change the title," he told reporters Wednesday at an unrelated event.
It’s a title no one wants.
But Governor Pat Quinn now owns the mantle of most unpopular governor in the country. Yes, more disliked than Scott Walker and Rick Perry and Jerry Brown, according to a new poll from Public Policy Polling.
The PPP poll confirms that Quinn's approval rating is just 25-percent. The poll was conducted between November 26-28 and sampled 500 Illinois voters.
Perhaps worse than his poor approval number is that 64-percent of poll respondents disapprove of his stewardship of the state.
