Former Gov. Larry Hogan (R) was running third behind former President Donald Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in a new poll of likely presidential primary voters in Maryland.
The poll, from firm co/efficient, was in the field on Sunday and Monday and surveyed 1,007 people through mobile text and landline interviews.
When asked who residents would support in the 2024 Republican presidential primary, 33% said they would back Trump, 27% supported DeSantis and 18% said they would pick Hogan. Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley attracted 6% support, former Vice President Mike Pence got 1%, and 12% of likely GOP voters said they were currently undecided.
While Trump polled six points ahead of the broader field, he was down on both image and head-to-head against DeSantis. About 56% of those polled had a favorable opinion of Trump, compared to 63% for DeSantis. Hogan’s favorability was not polled.
