Republican Govs. Charlie Baker of Massachusetts and Larry Hogan of Maryland continue to see the highest approval ratings in the country despite leading liberal states, according to a new Morning Consult poll. Baker, a moderate praised for his bipartisanship, has a 70% approval rating in a state where just 10% of voters are registered Republicans. And just a month out from election day, Hogan holds a 16-point lead over his progressive challenger, former NAACP president Ben Jealous.
