Gov. Larry Hogan remains popular, but Maryland residents aren’t so keen on him running for president, according to a new poll.
Hogan has been floated as a possible challenger to President Donald Trump in next year’s Republican primary, with some politicos drawn to Hogan’s popularity in a deeply Democratic state.
But just one-third of respondents in a poll Goucher College released Tuesday think Hogan should run for president in 2020. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed said the governor should not run for president.
Lackluster support for a Hogan 2020 run was consistent across party lines, with 35 percent support from Republicans, 32 percent support among Democrats and 31 percent support from independent voters.
