Gov. Mitch Daniels is winning a popularity contest of sorts. According to a ranking by The Washington Post, Daniels is the third most popular governor in the country. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo tops the list and New Jersey’s Chris Christie came in second. The rankings considered factors such as approval ratings, degree of difficulty of the job and the political leanings of their states. A bipartisan poll showed that Daniels has an approval rating of 63 percent.
