Bill O'Brien Approval Rating 2020

Drawing from a total of 648 votes submitted on a poll posted to, an alarmingly high 422 votes were cast in support of disapproval for O'Brien, compared to only 226 cast for approval. That's higher than a 65 percent disapproval rating for O'Brien, and it's really not hard to see why after this offseason.
