In liberal "Taxachusetts," the land of Elizabeth Warren and the Kennedys, sits the nation's most popular governor, Charlie Baker. The twist? He's a Republican. The runner-up, Gov. Larry Hogan, hails from Maryland, a state so blue it hasn't voted for a Republican president in decades and went nearly 2-to-1 for Hillary Clinton. Hogan is a Republican, too. And in the "People's Republic of Vermont," the liberal utopia of Bernie Sanders, Ben & Jerry's and a disproportionate number of Birkenstock dealers, you'll find the country's fourth most popular governor, Phil Scott. He's also a Republican, winning handily on the same night Clinton trounced Donald Trump in the state. The trio are anomalies — Republicans not just surviving, but thriving politically under President Donald Trump, and in the very bluest of states.
