A new poll from Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy shows Gov. Andy Beshear’s job performance rating has boomed to 60% approval in the past year — a 5% increase from a Mason-Dixon poll conducted in February 2021.

Andy Beshear’s approval rating is on the rise because Kentuckians can see firsthand how he’s put politics aside to deliver for families in every corner of the Commonwealth,” said DGA Deputy Communications Director Sam Newton. “Gov. Beshear’s leadership has led to record economic growth, billions in new investments, thousands of new jobs, and ensuring every kid has access to a world-class education.
