    Snyder is actually among the most unpopular governors...but, if I'm to be honest, it's because Michiganders are habitually unhappy people, and I say that as a proud Michigander.  They'd give a newborn baby a negative approval rating if it slept too long.

    That said, Snyder has also signed into law some wildly unpopular policies.  One that gets overlooked because it's not a culture war type issue is his tax on pensions.  While pensions were taxed in almost every other state, they weren't here, and when he passed that tax with the tax cuts to corporations, the optics of it all were just plain horrible.
