Charlie Baker Popular Among Bostonians

October 15, 2021

Boston is one of the most heavily Democratic parts of Massachusetts.

And yet, they generally like Republican governor Charlie Baker in the state’s capital.

A poll released by WBUR this week found that 56 percent of Bostonians had a favorable opinion of the incumbent governor while 22 percent had an unfavorable opinion. That was a net-approval of 34 points for Baker.

The poll surveyed 501 likely voters in the November 2021 Boston general election.

Although Baker is popular in Boston, there have not been any statewide polls recently on his approval rating. However, in recent years Baker has been among the most popular governors in the country.
