Poll finds Moore on ‘solid footing,’ AG joins transgender health brief

A majority of Maryland residents say they approve of Gov. Wes Moore’s (D) job performance during his first three months in office.

A poll released by the Sarah T. Hughes Center for Politics at Goucher College found that 53% of those surveyed approved of Moore’s early performance. Another 26% said they disapproved while 20% said they didn’t know.

The results are the first look at how state residents perceive the newly minted executive who was sworn in on Jan. 18.

“Being plus 27, effectively, looking at the approval minus disapproval, is a good place to be four months into office,” said Mileah Kromer, a professor of political science and director of the Goucher College poll.

Moore’s initial numbers lack the eye-popping approval numbers enjoyed by former Gov. Larry Hogan (R) over the bulk of his two terms. Kromer said the survey results are “solid footing” for the new governor. Kromer called Hogan’s 65%-70% approval ratings “the exception not the rule.”
