New UMass Amherst/ WCVB Poll Finds Baker Approval Rebounding Buoyed By Strong Views of Bay State Economy

A new statewide University of Massachusetts Amherst / WCVB Poll  finds Gov. Charlie Baker’s approval rebounding from his March 2021 low, buoyed by growing optimism about the Commonwealth’s economy and his handling of the COVID pandemic.
The poll of 750 Massachusetts residents conducted Nov. 9-16 found that 56% of respondents approve of the way Baker is doing his job, which while still down significantly from the 78% approval he held in August 2020 is four points higher than the 52% approval rating he held in a UMass Amherst / WCVB Poll conducted this past March.
