Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is popular with state voters — but that doesn't extend to a potential run for the Republican presidential nomination, according to a new poll.

If Hogan faced off next year against President Donald Trump, he would win just 24% of the vote in the state’s GOP primary, according to a poll released Thursday by Gonzales Research & Media Services.

Trump would capture 68% of Republican votes in Maryland, with 8% of voters undecided, according to the poll.

Hogan has been courted by some Republicans and conservatives looking for an alternative to Trump in next year’s election. Hogan has fanned speculation with a recent political appearance in New Hampshire and his promise to visit more than a dozen additional states.
