New Poll Rates Candidates, Baseball Teams


The latest polling in the Maryland governor's race puts Mayor Martin O'Malley ahead of Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. by nine percentage points--46 percent to 37 percent--and finds Montgomery County Executive Doug Duncan in a statistical dead heat with the Republican governor ( 41 percent for Duncan to 39 percent for Ehrlich).

The poll questions released by Steve Raabe of the Annapolis polling firm OpinionWorks do not include a horse race figure for the Democratic primary, where Duncan and O'Malley are vying for the nomination.

But the findings show that Duncan has his work cut out for him in the Baltimore region. O'Malley's margin against Ehrlich in that region is 44 to 42 percent, while Duncan loses to Ehrlich there 44 to 37 percent. Both Democrats beat Ehrlich in the Washington suburbs, O'Malley by 21 percentage points and Duncan by 16.

The poll also asked the 1,214 likely voters who they would root for in a World Series: the Orioles or the Nationals. About 57 percent picked the Os, while 23 percent went with the Nats. A Baltimore Sun poll a year ago put the figure at 64-20 for the Orioles.
