MassInsight reportedly has a poll putting Gov. Deval Patrick’s approval rating at 19%. I say reportedly because I like to see the methodology. There’s no link at MassInsight, and no idea what questions were asked. Still, 19 percent!?
Patrick appears to be running evenly with State Treasurer Tim Cahill and GOP gubernatorial candidate Charlie Baker.
In a survey of 445 residents, taken last month and released this week, only 19 percent of respondents gave him a positive job rating, while 77 percent rated it fair or poor. One percent said he was doing an excellent job. Those numbers are significantly worse than last month’s Globe poll, which also found him to be struggling politically.
Anyway you spin it, this looks really bad for Patrick.
