A Suffolk University/Boston Globe poll published Saturday shows that most Massachusetts residents agreed that the restrictions placed on daily life are necessary to fight the spread of coronavirus. And while just 28 percent of residents approve of President Donald Trump’s handling of the pandemic, 80 percent of residents approve of Governor Charlie Baker’s and another 65 percent approve of Boston Mayor Marty Walsh’s.
David Paleologos, the lead pollster for Suffolk University, told Jim Braude of WGBH News’ Greater Boston on Monday that the poll shows the state’s sense of community during this trying time.
“People are willing to hunker down and do whatever it takes to get back to life as normal. I mean this is a big sports … town we’re rallying behind the home team here and we’re doing whatever it takes to get through the game,” Paleologos said.
