Gov. Mike Pence of Indiana, once an oft-mentioned possibility for the White House, has taken a significant dip in the polls since his encounter with that state's religious liberty legislation. And remember that he'll be up for re-election next year:

In the 20 years that HPI has been publishing, and in the polling HPI has conducted since 2008, an Indiana governor has never experienced this kind of survey decline in this short time frame.

Even if he won’t ever be on a ballot again, you can bet that Gov. Nathan Deal is paying attention to those numbers.
