The approval rating also translates into substantial leads for him in the ballot test. Against Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker, who leads in Democratic primary polling, Gov. Hogan would score a 51-36% margin. If Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz were the Democratic nominee, the Governor’s margin would be a similar 49-34%. Should NAACP president Ben Jealous advance to the general election, Gov. Hogan’s preference rating is 50-33%.
