Seventy-one percent of registered voters in the state — including 63 percent ofDemocrats and 88 percent of Republicans — approve of the job he is doing, according to a recent poll.

The poll was conducted by Annapolis-based OpinionWorks, which shared its findings with The Baltimore Sun in advance of their release Tuesday.

Hogan’s support has grown by eight points since a Baltimore Sun/University of Baltimore survey in November, and it eclipses the ratings his predecessor, Democrat Martin O’Malley, received during his eight years in office.
