DescriptionUtahns appear to still be getting to know Gary Herbert after he has spent three months on the job as governor.

Half of Utah's registered voters had a favorable impression of the job Herbert has done since taking over for Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr., but nearly a quarter of those surveyed had no opinion of the job Herbert has done, according to a poll conducted for The Salt Lake Tribune.

"It's certainly not the numbers we've seen from Jon Huntsman and Mike Leavitt and so forth, but it's not necessarily a bad number at this point," said LaVarr Webb, a political consultant who was an adviser to former Gov. Leavitt. "I think it reflects the fact that, especially with the high number of undecideds, the jury is still out to some extent."

Herbert's spokeswoman, Angie Welling, said the numbers appear encouraging, and she expects people will warm to the new governor.
