BALTIMORE SUN: The ‘Trump Effect’ is Helping, Not Hurting, Gov. Hogan

Speculation began as soon as the polls closed in 2016 that Donald Trump’s deep unpopularity among Democrats and independents would make Larry Hogan a one-term governor.

The “Trump effect” was supposed to diminish Mr. Hogan’s re-election chances due to their shared party affiliation. Public polling since Mr. Trump’s election, including our mid-September Goucher Poll, suggests that this particular political prediction has not come to fruition.
