The worst performer was former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who earned a whopping -24% net favorability rating. Just 27% saw the Republican in at least a somewhat positive light while 51% viewed him poorly.
Other Republicans fared somewhat better, with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis earning a -5%, former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley scoring -1%, and tech mogul Vivek Ramaswamy earning a +7%. Former Vice President Mike Pence scored a -17%.
Conducted between June 10-13, the survey questioned 1,500 U.S. adults and has a margin or error of +/- 2.9%.
