Mason-Dixon Polling & Research also took a look at the developing Maryland gubernatorial campaign. Here, despite representing one of the most loyal of Democratic states, Republican Gov. Larry Hogan maintains excellent job approval ratings. According to this latest poll (2/20-22; 625 MD registered voters), the Governor’s favorability index is 63:26% positive to negative.
The approval rating also translates into substantial leads for him in the ballot test. Against Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker, who leads in Democratic primary polling, Gov. Hogan would score a 51-36% margin. If Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz were the Democratic nominee, the Governor’s margin would be a similar 49-34%. Should NAACP president Ben Jealous advance to the general election, Gov. Hogan’s preference rating is 50-33%.
