MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — Tennesseans continue to approve of how Gov. Bill Haslam is handling his job — 61 percent approve as opposed to only 15 percent who disapprove, a margin of more than 4-to-1, according to the latest MTSU Poll.
Furthermore, support for Haslam, a Republican, is broad-based with even a narrow majority of the state’s self-identified Democrats, 51 percent, saying that they approve of the job he is doing as governor as opposed to 25 percent who disapprove. Even larger majorities of Republicans (67 percent) and Independents (69 percent) approve of the job Haslam is doing as governor.
Support for the Tennessee General Assembly is softer, though a 48 percent plurality approve of the job it is doing as opposed to only 23 percent who disapprove. The remaining 29 percent either don’t know or refuse to answer the question.
