Missouri wants Bill

According to the latest Survey USA job-approval poll released today, New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson was ranked as one of the Top 10 Governors in the nation. Meanwhile Missouri’s least favorite son Governor Matt Blunt, son of Congressman Roy Blunt has a mere 40 percent approval rating.

The Survey USA poll, conducted August 11-13, reflects a 65 percent approval rate for Governor Richardson in New Mexico. The 65-percent approval rate ties Governor Richardson with Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman.

“I am pleased that a strong majority of New Mexicans approve of the direction we are taking the state,“New Mexico continues to show strong economic growth across the board, which is enabling us to push for additional tax cuts for working New Mexico families, increase access to quality health care and invest students in the classroom” Governor Bill Richardson said.

The Survey USA Poll surveyed 600 adults in all 50 states; margin of error +/- 4% (release, 8/22).
