Charlie Baker Leads Maura Healey In Hypothetical Race For Governor of Massachusetts

November 22, 2021

If Massachusetts governor Charlie Baker were to run for re-election and his opponent on the other side of the aisle were current attorney general Maura Healey, Baker would have the advantage. A new poll from UMass Amherst shows that Baker holds a 33-27 edge over Healey in a hypothetical matchup; about 30 percent are undecided. The margin of error in the poll is 4.3 percent.

Pollsters called Healey “the only Democrat surveyed who poses a competitive threat to the Republican incumbent.”

The poll showed that Baker is a stronger candidate than current lieutenant governor Karyn Polito. The poll has Healey leading Polito 32 percent to 18 percent in a hypothetical head-to-head matchup.

The poll did not show how former state representative Geoff Diehl would fare against Healey.
