December 3, 2012 Updated Dec 4, 2012 at 10:09 AM CDT

SPRINGFIELD, Ill -- A new poll shows governor Pat Quinn is the most unpopular governor in the country.

The public policy poll shows only 25 percent of voters in the state approved of the job Quinn is doing, a rating they say comes in dead last among the nation's governors.

The poll finds that Quinn would trail in hypothetical matchups with Republicans Kirk Dillard and Dan Rutherford.

Quinn would top congressman Aaron Schock by a 40-to-39 margin.
