Sixty-four percent of registered voters said they view the Republican governor favorably…
A new poll released by WBUR Tuesday found that Gov. Charlie Baker earned a favorable rating from 64 percent of registered voters in Massachusetts. Baker, who earned his first term in 2014, is up for reelection in 2018.
“Charlie Baker is very popular,” pollster Steve Koczela told WBUR. “Throughout most of his term, he’s been either one of the most popular or the most popular governor in America.”
Being one of the nation’s most popular governors means Baker has bipartisan support. Tuesday’s poll showed that 57 percent of Democrats hold a favorable view of the Republican governor as well.
The poll found Baker easily defeating any of his three Democratic opponents, with the closest margin being a 27-point lead for Baker:
The WBUR poll finds Baker with a 33-point lead over Jay Gonzalez, who was secretary of administration and finance under former Gov. Deval Patrick. Fifty-five percent say they would vote for Baker, 22 percent for Gonzalez.
Baker holds a 30-point lead over environmentalist Robert Massie, 55 percent to 25 percent.
Baker’s tightest lead against an announced opponent is against Newton Mayor Setti Warren, but it’s still a 27-point lead, 53 percent to 26 percent.
