Poll: Maryland Governor Has 54 Percent Favorable Rating



    New Shoulder Replacement Procedure Gives the Gift of Movement
    Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan discussed the budget debate in the final week of the state's legislative session, April 6, 2015, in Annapolis, Md.

    A new poll says 54 percent of Maryland residents view Gov. Larry Hogan favorably, up from 33 percent in February.

    The poll by Goucher College released Monday found 15 percent viewed the Republican governor unfavorably and 30 percent responded they didn't know.

    Fifty-eight percent of people approve of the way Hogan is handling his job, up from 40 percent in the college's February poll. The latest poll found 18 percent disapproved and 23 percent didn't know.

    The February poll was released less than a month after he took office.

    The new poll found approval across party lines. The governor has approval from 80 percent of Republicans polled and 54 percent of Democrats.

    The survey conducted last week has a 3.9 percentage-point margin of error. It polled 636 residents.
