Thanks to Cecil Calvert for tipping me off to that news in his post yesterday entitled, “ 3 reasons why Bob Ehrlich is dropping in the polls.”
Democratic incumbent Martin O’Malley holds his largest advantage yet over Republican Bob Ehrlich in the race to be Maryland’s next governor.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state finds O’Malley earning 49% of the vote, while Ehrlich receives 41% support. One percent (1%) favors some other candidate, and eight percent (8%) remain undecided.
Read Cecil Calvert at the “Disfunction of Maryland Politics” to see what he thinks is going wrong for Ehrlich. And, just a reminder that Richard Falknor at Blue Ridge Forum had some suggestions for what else Bob Ehrlich could be doing to win over some undecided conservatives.
Wow! Rasmussen estimates the Tea Party in Maryland at 17%
Seventeen percent (17%) of Maryland voters consider themselves members of the Tea Party movement, slightly higher than the national average. [Rasmussen puts the national average at 13%]
