Poll: Clinton Has Edge Among Mass. Voters; Gov. Baker Remains Popular

By Fred Thys
"...The poll also finds that Gov. Charlie Baker continues to be highly popular among Massachusetts voters.

Sixty-nine percent of respondents view Baker, a Republican, favorably, compared with just 10 percent who view him unfavorably.

He’s most popular among Republicans. Seventy-eight percent of Republicans view Baker favorably. But he’s also extremely popular among unenrolled voters, as 72 percent of these voters view him favorably. And even Democrats view him favorably. Sixty-three percent of Democrats have a favorable view of him.

Among women, 64 percent have a favorable view of the governor. But Baker is more popular among men, with a 75 percent favorability.

Among the state’s over-60 voters, Baker remains popular with a 76 percent favorable rating. His rating is lowest among the youngest voters, 18-29, though still relatively popular among them at 57 percent favorable.

The poll, as we reported earlier Wednesday, also finds 49 percent of voters opposing Boston hosting the Olympics in 2024, with only 39 percent supporting the idea."
