Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback has lost a title he probably didn’t care for much in the first place.
The Republican is now the second least popular governor in the country. Missouri Democrat Claire McCaskill, meanwhile, is among the least popular U.S. senators, according to a new poll released Tuesday.

Who’s the least popular governor in the U.S.? That would be Chris Christie of New Jersey.
Morning Consult, a media and survey research company based in the nation’s capital, said it polled more than 85,000 registered voters across the country from January to March in an effort to determine American public officials’ approval rankings.
Morning Consult polled 1,026 people in Kansas and 2,525 people in Missouri to determine rankings for the state’s leading politicians.
The data show that 66 percent of the people responding disapproved of Brownback’s work as the governor of Kansas, while McCaskill had a 39 percent disapproval rating, the fifth worst of any United States senator.
