(Washington Examiner) — A new poll puts former Maryland governor Bob Ehrlich in a statistical dead heat with Democratic Gov. Martin O’Malley, driven by a growing disaffection among Democrats.
Ehrlich, a Republican, won 47 percent of votes compared with O’Malley’s 46 percent in a Rasmussen telephone survey of 500 likely Maryland voters. Five percent said they were undecided, while 2 percent said they prefer another candidate. A 4.5 percent margin of error puts the candidates tied.
