Hi. Welcome to On Politics, your guide to the day in national politics. I’m Lisa Lerer, your host.

Larry Hogan is a guy who has spent a whole lot of time talking about running for president.
But none of it, he says, is his idea.
In recent weeks, Mr. Hogan, the Republican governor of deeply blue Maryland, has become the avatar of the G.O.P.’s “Never Trump” faction, carefully positioning himself as the reluctant savior ready to step in for his party should a big bombshell drop.
Mr. Hogan is a popular politician with an interesting — and perhaps prescient — personal story: His father, as a member of the House Judiciary Committee, was the very first Republican to come out for President Richard M. Nixon’s impeachment, and was the only congressional Republican to vote for all three articles of impeachment.
Mr. Hogan says he had never given much thought to being president before he was approached by prominent Trump critics like William Kristol, a leader of the motley crew of moderate Republicans, libertarians and foreign policy hawks who make up the Never Trump movement. “No interest, no thought, no desire, no plans,” he told me and my colleague Alex Burns in an interview last week.
“I guess I just left the door open, saying, ‘You never say never,’” he said. “I don’t know what’s going to happen in the next several months.”
He was in Iowa today for a National Governors Association event. A trip to New Hampshire later this spring is being considered.
Mr. Hogan is right: A lot can happen in the next few months, particularly given the news today that the House Judiciary Committee requested documents from 81 agencies, individuals and companies tied to the president, including his sons and son-in-law, Jared Kushner.
Former Gov. John Kasich and former Senator Jeff Flake have talked about challenging the president, and at least one potential opponent is nearly in the race already — former Gov. William F. Weld of Massachusetts, who started an exploratory committee last month.
But there are a few key facts to remember when you hear Republicans floating the idea:
1. No sitting president in the modern era has been successfully unseated in a primary.
2. Mr. Trump is still really, really popular among Republicans. An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released over the weekend found that nearly 90 percent of Republicans approve of the president.
He may be right. But that’s not an argument likely to win over Republican voters.
Just ask Mr. Kasich.

____________________Polls, polls, polls
If you’re a regular reader of this newsletter, you know we love dumping on early primary polls. At most, they are a decent gauge of name recognition — a metric that will quickly shift as candidates campaign.
So we were really excited to see this far more enlightening question in the NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released over the weekend. The survey left off the names and asked about characteristics — say, “a candidate who is a woman” — as a way of testing voter biases.
The results held some good news for the historically diverse Democratic field. Only 10 percent expressed reservations with an African-American candidate and 14 percent with a female candidate. Comfort with a gay or lesbian candidate surged to 68 percent, up from 43 percent in 2006.
But the biggest takeaway could be bad news for a candidate who looks awfully like Bernie Sanders.
Sixty-two percent of voters said they were uncomfortable backing a candidate older than age 75. Seventy-one percent expressed reservations with a socialist.
Hmmm … I happen to know an aging socialist who gave a big campaign speech in Brooklyn over the weekend.
