Most Oregonians approve of the job Governor John Kitzhaber is doing. That's according to a new survey published by Portland-based Riley Research. Mike Riley says that regular voters and those more interested in politics seemed to give him a higher rating. People living in the metro areas also gave him a higher rating.
Riley says the reason may come down to party affiliation, because more Democrats live in the metro area than in Central and Eastern Oregon. Bottom line, he says the Governor seems to be doing fine.
