Nikki Haley’s popularity rating increases

PTI Washington | Updated on March 12, 2018

Indian-American South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley’s popularity rating has increased, a latest survey has said.

The approval rating of Haley is now reported to be 43.7 per cent — a jump of nearly nine points since December 2011, when 34.6 per cent of the registered voters had given thumbs up to her approval.

“Governor Haley has always said that poll numbers go up and down. But her focus is on the state’s jobs numbers, and she’s thrilled that they keep getting better and better,” her spokesman Rob Godfrey said.

41-year-old Haley is only the second Indian-American Governor of a US State and the first Indian-American woman Governor.

Haley’s approval rating is on an upswing, at a time when the popularity of another Indian-American Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana has registered a decline.

According to the survey from Democratic firm Public Policy Polling released last week, 37 per cent of the people in Louisiana survey for this poll approved the performance of Jindal, while 57 per cent disapproved.

In the last poll carried out by Public Policy Polling in August 2010, Jindal had a approval rating of 58 per cent, while only 34 per cent disapproved.
