This was reported via Maryland Matters:
A month-old poll conducted for an independent expenditure group set up to support Democrat Calvin B. Ball’s bid for Howard County executive showed a close race shaping up between Ball and the man he is trying to oust, Allan Kittleman, the Republican incumbent.
The robo-poll of 452 likely voters, taken July 31 and Aug. 1 by a Mississippi-based Democratic firm, Chism Strategies, showed Kittleman with 38 percent, Ball with 35.2 percent, and 26.8 percent of voters undecided. That gap was within the poll’s 4.6-point margin of error.
