Amidst News Washington's Median Income Grew in 2015, New Poll Has Gov. Inslee Approval at 54%

Washington's Median Household Income Grew Over $2,700 Last Year

Seattle - As governor, Jay Inslee's worked hard to build a stronger economy and better future for every Washington family. And that hard work is continuing to pay off. 
 
 
Amidst the good news of Washington's incomes rising, Morning Consult reports that Governor Inslee's approval rating is at 54% and his disapproval is at only 30%. According to Morning Consult, they surveyed 71,900 registered voters in all 50 states from early May 2016 through early September 2016. Survey respondents were asked whether they approved or disapproved of their governor’s job performance.
 
“Governor Jay Inslee said he would focus on improving the economy and creating jobs, and that's exactly what he has done as governor,” said Jamal Raad, Inslee’s communications director. "Over the last four years, unemployment has gone down in every county across the state, and median household incomes are now rising for Washington's families. Washington voters are pleased with the Governor Inslee's focus and effort on building a stronger economy and better future for every Washington family, and that's reflected in Morning Consult's new numbers."
