This is the final installment of a three-part series on MTN-MSU’s post-election poll

BOZEMAN – Gov. Steve Bullock, a Democrat, and Republican U.S. Sen. Steve Daines are Montana’s most popular politicians on a statewide level, according to an MTN News-Montana State University post-election poll of state voters.

Bullock’s approval rating came in at 60 percent in the poll, which queried voters after last November’s election, and Daines scored a 58 percent approval rating.

President Donald Trump and two Montanan officials who won re-election last year, Democratic U.S. Sen. Jon Tester and Republican Congressman Greg Gianforte, rated slightly lower, but still scored at least a 50 percent approval rating.
