UMass Poll Assesses Approval of MA Elected Officials

There is ongoing coverage reporting results of a new UMass Poll that assessed the approval of Massachusetts elected officials and also measured opinions about the housing shortage in Massachusetts and the state of  the MBTA.  Ten months into her term, 58% of all respondents – including over 25% of Trump voters – approve of Gov. Maura Healey’s performance, while more than half say she has not handled the housing shortage well.
