When your favorability rating’s so bright, you gotta wear shades.

A new Goucher College poll shows Gov. Larry Hogan’s popularity on the rise among Marylanders, the Baltimore Sun reports.

According to the poll, the Republican governor enjoys a 54 percent favorability rating in the Democrat-dense state. That’s a 21 percent increase from Goucher’s February poll. Since then, Hogan has squashed the Red Line proposal (but approved the Purple Line), closed the beleagured Baltimore City men’s jail, withheld $68 million in funds earmarked for education, and staged a public and heroic battle with stage-3 non-Hodgkins lymphoma.

Similar questions elicited similar answers. Fifty-eight percent of those polled (and a majority of Democrats) said they approve of the job Hogan is doing, and 56 percent said the state is moving in the right direction.

This same sample of Marylanders registered a 53 percent approval rating of the job President Barack Obama has done.
