Poll after poll is showing similar results…Hogan holds a big advantage in the Governors race in Maryland. Here is the latest info via the Baltimore Sun:

Republican Gov. Larry Hogan leads Democratic challenger Ben Jealous by 15 percentage points with six weeks left to go in the race, according to a new poll released Thursday.

The survey, conducted Monday through Wednesday by Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy, showed Hogan with 52 percent of the vote compared with 37 percent for Jealous. The polling firm described Hogan’s lead as “comfortable.”

Libertarian candidate Shawn Quinn and Green Party nominee Ian Schlakman each garnered 1 percent support, while 9 percent were undecided.

Pollster Brad Coker said the poll shows “a little tightening in the race” after Monday’s debate — the only time the two men have met on stage. Hogan was up by 22 percentage points in a Goucher College poll earlier this month. His average lead has been close to 17 points, according to Real Clear Politics.

Here is the link to the polling data from the Goucher Polling that showed Hogan up by 22 points:

Many I have heard from thought Jealous did better in the only debate…I am not sure I am in that camp…I thought both had good and bad moments….but this poll shows that the debate did not significantly change the minds of Marylanders…or at least not the ones that were contacted in this poll.

Less than one month before early voting starts…and this election will all be about turnout…so make sure to get out and vote…no matter which candidate you support.
