BOSTON (CBS) – With less than a month to go before he is up for re-election, a new poll shows Charlie Baker continues to be the most popular governor in the country.
Massachusetts voters give Baker a 70 percent approval rating in the Morning Consult survey released Wednesday. Only 17 percent disapprove of Baker’s performance.
Baker and fellow Republican Gov. Larry Hogan of Maryland have consistently been at the top of the quarterly survey of America’s governors.
