INDIANAPOLIS – According to a new poll by national polling firm We Ask America, Hoosiers are giving Governor Eric Holcomb very high marks for his work as Indiana’s chief executive. The poll shows that 54% of Hoosier voters approve of Governor Holcomb’s job performance, with a strong net job approval of +30 percentage points.
“Above all else, Hoosiers value results from their leaders, and this poll shows that Hoosiers see results from Governor Eric Holcomb,” said Kyle Hupfer, treasurer of Eric Holcomb for Indiana. “Under Governor Holcomb’s leadership, Indiana is the fiscal envy of the nation, but it doesn’t stop there. Indiana is home to record job commitments, record infrastructure investments, new workforce development opportunities and a state government that is becoming leaner and more responsive to the needs of Hoosiers. These results are resonating in Hoosiers’ lives, and they overwhelmingly approve of the leadership Governor Holcomb is providing.”
We Ask America’s analysis of the poll’s results says that Governor Holcomb’s “re-election looks all but guaranteed” and that “Governor Holcomb is on the cusp of running away with his own re-election.”
The poll comes as Governor Holcomb closes out the 2019 legislative session, delivering big results for Hoosiers as part of his Next Level Agenda. This includes signing Indiana’s eighth-straight balanced budget, increasing K-12 education funding by an historic $763 million, accelerating the completion of major highway projects, connecting unserved Hoosiers to broadband internet, doubling down on Next Level Jobs, improving school safety, attacking the infant mortality rate, passing Indiana’s first bias crimes law and more.
