Sam Brownback is even less popular than Bobby Jindal

Like Kansas, Louisiana enacted ruinous Grover Norquist-style income tax cuts in the last few years.

Like Kansas, Louisiana’s economy has suffered for it.

Like Kansas, Louisiana has a deeply unpopular governor.

Anyone notice a pattern?

A national poll out on Friday reports that Sam Brownback and Bobby Jindal are the two most unpopular governors in the country.

Unfortunately for Brownback, he’s quite a bit less popular than Jindal, the Louisiana governor who this week finally got the hint and decided to abandon his presidential aspirations.

According to a Morning Consult poll of 75,000 Americans in each of the 50 states, Brownback has a 26 percent approval rating among Kansans polled. Jindal had a 36 percent approval rating.

That makes Brownback the leading horse, by a long shot, in a sad-sack race of unpopular governors.

(As an aside, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker are right on Jindal’s heels in terms of unpopularity. How is it that any of these guys think they can be president?)

Despite his unpopularity, Brownback hasn’t signaled any departure from his political strategy.
