Another Poll Shows Hogan Leads Dems By Double Digits in MD

Friday, June 15th, 2018

Early voting started yesterday here in Maryland and there was another gubernatorial poll earlier this week showing Hogan with double-digit leads over the top Democrats according to a new poll from Gonzales Research.

Larry Hogan (R-inc) 48%
Rushern Baker (D) 37%

Larry Hogan (R-inc) 52%
Ben Jealous (D) 34%

Rushern Baker 25%
Ben Jealous 23%
Rich Madaleno 9%
Valerie Ervin 7%
Jim Shea 6%
Krish Vignarajah5%
Alec Ross 2%

This poll was done June 4-10. it’s worth noting even with these numbers, in 2014 Gonzales’ final poll in that race showed Hogan losing by 2% when Hogan ended up winning by 4%. This was at the same time (over the same time period) another pollster had Hogan ahead by 5%.

The other thing worth noting, the last time Maryland had an incumbent Republican Governor running for re-election in 2006, the Democratic candidate Martin O’Malley already had a lead in the polls in the high-single to low-double digits by roughly the same time of the election calendar. The fact that the Democrats are still trailing Hogan by double digits this late in the game is great news for Larry Hogan if history is prologue.

Baker/Jealous Tied in MD

Sunday, June 10th, 2018

The Baltimore Sun and Opinion Works have released a primary poll for Maryland showing the same top two candidate in the Democratic field as The Washington Post showed last week.

Ben Jealous 16%
Rushern Baker 16%
Valerie Ervin 5%
Rich Madaleno 4%
Jim Shea 4%
Krish Vignarajah 4%
Alec Ross 1%

This poll was done May 29-June 6 among 500 likely primary voters. There was not General Election numbers released in this article, not sure if they were done this time around. But the fascinating question in this poll indicated only 57% of Democratic primary voters (which in Maryland are strictly Democrats as the primaries are closed) will vote for the Democrat in November with 24% saying they will vote for Republican Larry Hogan.
