After a year in office, Gov. Larry Hogan has registered a 67-percent approval rating, topping his previous numbers as well as the approval ratings of former Govs. Robert Ehrlich and Martin O’Malley.
According to Maryland Reporter, two-thirds of Maryland voters polled last week said they approve of the job Hogan is doing. A mere 19 percent disapprove.
Ehrlich achieved his highest approval rating of 57 percent (with 30 percent disapproving) eight months into his four-year tenure. O’Malley did his Republican predecessor literally one better when he reach 58-percent approval in the January following his reelection.
Hogan is overwhelmingly popular among the state’s Republican and Independent voters, which makes up for his not-too-bad-considering 49-percent approval among Democrats.
