As Townhall previously noted, it’s good to be Gov. Larry Hogan. The Maryland Republican governor has beaten cancer, and has maintained high approval ratings, soaring into the 60s percentage-wise, in a deep-blue state. Now, a poll released earlier this month showed that his adoration has been kicked up a notch (WBAL):
Governor Larry Hogan's job approval rating now stands at 70%, according to a new statewide poll.
The Gonzales Poll of 809 registered voters finds 45% strongly approve of the job Hogan is doing, 25% somewhat approve.
The poll finds 18-percent disapprove of the job Hogan is doing while 12% have no opinion.
A similar poll conducted in January found Hogan with a 67% approval rating.
The poll finds the Republican Hogan with a 53% approval rating among Democrats, compared to 49% in January. Hogan's approval rating is at 94% among Republicans and 82% among independents.
Registered Democrats outnumber registered Republican voters by a 2-to-1 margin in Maryland.
Gonzales told WBAL NewsRadio 1090 that the poll results go against, "the yin and the yang of politics."
When a Republican candidate is adored by Republicans, typically Democrats at an equal level do not like that candidate, and vice versa, and that has not happened for Hogan," Gonzales added.
