Biggest Polling Loser From MD – Gravis Marketing
Since this is mainly a site dedicated to polling, I could not this primary night in Maryland on Tuesday pass without mentioning the polling disaster in Maryland’s District 1 from Gravis Marketing. If you remember this post from January, Republican challenger Mike Smigiel released a poll from Gravis Marketing claiming he had a 58%-29% lead over incumbent Andy Harris. It actually led to some to claim Harris might be in trouble.
The final results from Tuesday night? Andy Harris defeated Mike Smigiel by a blowout margin of 78%-11%.

My Ballot for Tuesday
It is finally Election Day here in Maryland and tomorrow morning, I will be casting this ballot.
[X] John Kasich
[X] KATHY SZELIGA
US HOUSE 3
[X] MARK PLASTER
DELEGATES TO GOP CONVENTION (Choose Up To 3)
[X] Janet Moye Cornick (Uncommitted)
[X] Mary Beth Tung (Christie)
ALT DELEGATES TO GOP CONVENTION (Choose Up To 3)
[X] Joyce Pope (Rubio)
[X] Jeff Robinson (Rubio)
BOARD OF EDUCATION (Choose Up To 3)
[X] Vicky Cutroneo
[X] Christina Delmont-Small
I decided to do some bullet voting for delegates and the Board of Education instead of choosing all three spots. Normally in Maryland, which Presidential candidate wins the primary drags their assigned delegates across the line as well and right now, that would be Donald Trump if the polls hold.

Keeping up my sporadic posting, I will stick with my home state and the new poll from Monmouth University that has Chris Van Hollen now opening up a huge lead over Donna Edwards in the Democratic primary for the US Senate.

Chris Van Hollen 52%
Donna Edwards 36%
This poll was done April 18-20 among 300 likely primary voters.

Trump Leads GOP, Van Hollen Leads Edwards By 9% in MD
As you can probably guess form my sporadic posting of late, my time is extremely limited and sometimes certain things have to fall by the wayside and unfortunately this site is one of those things I’ll keep posting as I can and I am not going to miss an opportunity to post a new poll for the state of Maryland from Public Policy Polling.
PRESIDENT – MARYLAND – GOP PRIMARY (PPP)
US SENATE – MARYLAND – DEM PRIMARY (PPP)
Chris Van Hollen 42%
Donna Edwards 33%
The biggest surprise here is the surge by Chris Van Hollen moving ahead of Donna Edwards on the Democratic side. This poll was done April 15-17 among 310 primary voters.

Trump Leads GOP in MD, Two Polls Conflict On Who Is In Second Place
PRESIDENT – MARYLAND (Monmouth)
PRESIDENT – MARYLAND (Marist)
PRESIDENT – MARYLAND (Marist)
The Marist poll was done April 5-9 among 368 likely primary voters. The Monmouth poll was done April 10-12 among 301 likely primary voters. Based on those General Election numbers above, my refusal to vote for Donald Trump as the Republican nominee really does not matter….

A lot of polls out for the state of New York, but there was one for the state of Connecticut from Emerson College that shows what a terrible mistake Republican primary voters are making.

The numbers speak for themselves. This poll was done April 10-11 among 1043 likely voters.

Kasich Moves Into 2nd Place in MD, Pugh Leads Dixon By 6% in Baltimore
My home state of Maryland votes in less than three weeks and it looks like John Kasich has moved into a solid second place according to The Washington Post and the University of Maryland.
PRESIDENT – MARYLAND – GOP PRIMARY (WaPo/UMD)
PRESIDENT – MARYLAND (WaPo/UMD)
This poll was done March 30-April 3 among likely voters. I will say, it is clear the establishment in Maryland is full square behind Kasich if a anecdotal survey of my politically-active Republican friends is a representative sample. Sticking close to home, The Baltimore Sun and The University of Baltimore are showing Democratic voters may be end up not giving former mayor Sheila Dixon, who was forced to leave office previously after being convicted of a misdemeanor, another term as Mayor.
MAYOR – BALTIMORE – DEM PRIMARY (BaSu/UofB)
Catherine Pugh 31%
Sheila Dixon 25%
Elizabeth Embry 9%
David Warnock 7%
Nick Mosby 5%
Carl Stokes 5%
Everyone Else <1%
This poll was done April 1-4 among 400 likely primary voters.
