(WTVA) - Governor Phil Bryant still has a favorable rating by a majority of Mississippians, but that favorability rating is not as high as it was two years ago.
That's the finding of a Mason-Dixon poll released this week.
The phone survey of more than 600 registered voters puts Bryant's approval rating at 59 percent.
Last year, it was 68 percent. The year before, it was 72 percent.
The survey also looked at how the 2019 gubernatorial race would shape up if Democratic Attorney General Jim Hood ran against Republican Lieutenant Governor Tate Reeves.
Results show Hood with 43 percent, Reeves with 37 percent and 20 percent undecided.
Neither candidate has said if he will seek the state's top political office.
The survey was conducted from December 13 through December 15. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percent.
