Rasmussen: 52 Percent O'Malley, 42 Percent Ehrlich

Well, the news keeps getting worse for Team Ehrlich.

Following back to back Baltimore Sun and Washington Post polls showing Governor O’Malley with double-digit leads is the latest Rasmussen Reports poll which gives O’Malley a 52 – 42 advantage over Ehrlich among likely voters. The previous Rasmussen poll had O'Malley ahead by 49 – 41 percent.

Perhaps most significant is the fact that Rasmussen has moved Maryland’s governor’s race from the “Leans Democrat” into the “Solid Democrat” category.


  1. This is great news for Ehrlich. O'Malley's lead has shrunk from 14 to 10.

  2. It is now safe to say that we know how things will look after next Tuesday. The only question will be the margin of O'Malley's victory. MOM will win by at least 6 points and may even blow RLE out of the water. In the end: the GOP, conservatives, and tea party are just not that motivated by Ehrlich.

    This is a Dem state and the Dems are doing what they do best - win in MD. This just goes to show how much of an anomaly 2002 was. It took a train wreck like KKT to put an R in Government House.

    It is also interesting how many former Ehrlich admin folks are sitting this one out. People who were helping run the show in 2002 and 2006 are nowhere to be seen. This is partly due to the fact that RLE put the same folks in charge this year that blew it in 2006. There is no animosity in these comments, only stating facts.

  3. It would take a trainwreck to get blown out by a Democratic incumbent this year. Then again Bob Ehrlich was the only incumbent Republican Governor to lose in 2006 (somehow the Bush factor didn't effect to others)
