Charlie Baker Dominates the Field in Latest WBUR Poll

The people of Massachusetts can’t get enough of Republican Gov. Charlie Baker.

That’s according to a new poll released by WBUR on Friday. The poll shows Baker, who is running for reelection this year, has a 67-percent approval rating from Massachusetts voters. Just nine percent said they viewed Baker unfavorably.

Those numbers have translated into massive leads against his would-be Democrat gubernatorial challengers.

Baker leads liberal activist Bob Massie 60 percent to 21 percent. Similarly, he leads former Deval Patrick staffer Jay Gonzalez 59-19.

Baker will have to fend off a primary challenge before facing either of these Democrats, however:

Baker faces an intra-party battle against controversial pastor Scott Lively, a President Trump-aligned candidate who in late April cleared a key hurdle to get on the primary ballot.

With now just over five months until Election Day, at least two thirds of voters say they haven’t heard of either of the two Democratic gubernatorial candidates, Jay Gonzalez and Bob Massie.
