Another poll shows Governor Larry Hogan holds a big advantage in the race for Governor in Maryland. This was reported by the Washington Post:
“With less than a month until Election Day, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has built a formidable lead over Democratic challenger Ben Jealous, with few voters undecided and most preferring the incumbent Republican even on key Jealous policy issues such as health care and education, a new Washington Post-University of Maryland poll finds.
Likely voters in Maryland support Hogan by a 20-point margin, 58 percent to 38 percent. Just 5 percent have not settled on a candidate.
In a state where Democrats outnumber Republicans more than 2 to 1, Hogan appears to have assembled a coalition that cuts into the Democratic base, giving him a clear advantage over Jealous in bellwether Baltimore County and running competitively in heavily Democratic Montgomery. Jealous leads Hogan in only one of Maryland’s major geographic blocs — Prince George’s County.”

Now this is four polls that I have written about that show big leads for Governor Hogan:
- Gonzales: Hogan 52% / Jealous 36% – a 16 point gap
- Goucher: Hogan 54% / Jealous 32% – a 22 point gap
- Mason Dixon: Hogan 52% / Jealous 37% – a 15 point gap
So that is a range of 15 to 22 points over four polls….and Governor Hogan has more than 50% in each of those polls. That is a BIG deal.
I hear another poll will be released soon…so stay tuned for more information.
