Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards is the most popular Democratic governor, according to poll numbers gathered by Morning Consult. 

All fourteen governors ahead of him in the poll are Republicans. Morning Consult compiled approval polls taken between October 1, 2019 and December 31, 2019. Since that time, one of the governors on the list, Mississippi Republican Phil Bryant, just ahead of Edwards, has left office.

At 54 percent approval, the recently reelected Edwards has the eighth-highest approval rating.

Wyoming's Mark Gordon, Maryland's Larry Hogan, and Massachusetts' Charlie Baker are all tied at the top with 69 percent approval.
