UMass Poll Finds MA Residents Unfamiliar with Gov. Maura Healey’s Policies

Residents also identified the housing shortage and lack of affordable housing as the top issue they want the governor to address in her first year in office. While 57% of those surveyed said they approved of Healey’s job so far, 19% said they were not sure. Sixty-one percent said she was meeting expectations so far, but more than one-in-five respondents said they didn’t know how Healey compares with her predecessor on several points, including their ideology and leadership styles. Even larger numbers said they didn’t know how to rate Healey’s performance on major issue. (WCVB-TV, 4/10/23)
