Elise Viebeck reports in The Hill:

According to a new poll out Friday, governors nationwide tend to face the lowest approval ratings when compared with President Obama and the senators from their states.

In 52% of states examined by the latest Public Policy Polling survey, the governor ranked lowest of the four in popularity. In another 12%, they ranked second-to-last.

California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) has the highest unfavorables among his peers, at 71-19. The survey notes that his popularity has sunk eight points in the last two months.

The exceptions to the rule include New Hampshire Governor John Lynch (D), Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal (R), Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe (D), and Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear (D).
