Connecticut's governor is among the least popular governors in the country, according to a survey.

Gov. Dannel Malloy was the second least popular governor, according to the Morning Consult survey.

However, he's the least popular Democratic governor. 

Researchers had Malloy with a 64 percent disapproval rating, compared to a 29 percent approval rating. Seven percent didn't know.

The margin of error was 3.6 percent.

Morning Consult cited Connecticut experiencing job losses to neighboring Massachusetts as one of the reasons for the large disapproval rating.

Only Republican Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback topped Malloy with a 65 percent disapproval rating.

Gov. Charlie Baker of Massachusetts, Gov. Larry Hogan of Maryland and Gov. Matt Mead of Wyoming were the most popular, respectively.

Morning Consult said it conducted its survey between January and May.

Its data was weighed using the U.S. Census Bureau's Current Population Survey.
