Poll: Jobs and the economy will determine many voters’ choice for Maryland governor in 2022

When selecting Maryland’s next governor, many voters will pick a candidate they believe can boost jobs and the economy, a new poll shows.

Registered voters in the state were asked in a Goucher College Poll what policy issues they expect to be most important in determining their vote.

The gubernatorial election is just over a year away on Nov. 8, with Democratic and Republican primaries scheduled for June 28.

Republican Gov. Larry Hogan cannot seek reelection because of term limits. About a dozen candidates are actively campaigning for the 2022 election.

Goucher’s poll is conducted through the Sarah T. Hughes Center for Politics at the college.
