Activity in Oklahoma’s capital caught the attention of many in Bryan County this spring with the topic of teacher pay and how the situation was being handled in the state’s government.

This issue was likely at the top of the minds of those who voted in a national survey recently.

The Morning Consult has a quarterly poll, which includes more than 300,000 voters from across the country. For the period of Apr. 1-June 30, 2018, Oklahoma’s governor was at the top of one of the categories polled. And it was not a category that reflects well.

Mary Fallin, who is completing her second and final term as governor, was at the top of the “Disapprove” category, ranked among the 50 governors throughout the U.S.

Fallin had a 74 percent disapproval rating with just a 19 percent approval rating, with the poll listing a 2 percent margin of error.

2018 is a gubernatorial election year in Oklahoma. In the June primary, Drew Edmondson secured the nomination to run as the Democratic candidate. There is a runoff on the Republican side between Mick Cornett and Kevin Stitt, which will take place in August.
