According to the Detroit Free Press, a recent poll ranked Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder as the 4th most unpopular governor in the nation.

The poll also found that U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow was tied for 6th among U.S. senators with the highest disapproval ratings, a finding that could cheer Republicans as they look for a candidate to challenge the three term senator in 2018.

Snyder's approval rating, which cratered in 2015 over his handling of lead contamination of Flint's drinking water was 40%, according to the recent poll.
