BOSTON (WBZNewsRadio) - According to a new survey, Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker is the nation's most popular governor.

The survey by the Morning Consult, a global decision intelligence company, conducted the survey between Jan. 1 and March 31 of 2022. The poll surveyed 9,849 voters in the state of Massachusetts.

They found Baker holds a 74 percent approval rating. On the other side, with just a 21 percent, he holds the lowest disapproval rating of any sitting governor across the country.

Next in line came Vermont Gov. Phil Scott with 72 percent approval and Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan with 71 percent approval. On the other end of the spectrum, Oregon's Gov. Kate Brown tied with Hawaii's Gov. David Ige for the lowest approval rating in the U.S. with just 41 percent. Rhode Island's Gov. Dan McKee came in third with a 42 percent approval rating.

This isn't the first time Baker has held the coveted top spot. He's held the number one title several times since taking office in 2015, but fell to third-most-popular in 2020.

Baker announced in December he would not be seeking reelection. He said in a statement, the decision was in part so his administration could better focus of larger issues in the state like the COVID-19 recovery rather than putting time and effort onto the campaign trail.
