INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Governor Mike Pence is halfway through his first term and the results of the WISH-TV/Ball State Hoosier Survey show that most Hoosiers think he’s doing a good job. The governor’s approval rating is 62 percent. Just 24 percent disapprove of the job he’s done with 14 percent undecided.

Ball State Professor Ray Scheele analyzed the results.

“Generally speaking there’s more trust in state government across the board and in the people, the main leaders of state government than there is in Washington,” explained Scheele.

The Hoosier Survey also found that more people have heard good things about Governor Pence than any other potential GOP candidate for President for 2016. More than half said there is some chance they would vote for Pence for President. It’s still not known if the governor will make a bid for the White House, though conservatives have urged him to do so. Hoosier Survey - Governor Mike Pence Approval Ratings
