Hogan Dominates Dems in MD

Wednesday, March 14th, 2018

About the only positive Republicans can possibly take out of last night is how badly Monmouth University botched their final poll. Monmouth claimed the Democrat Conor Lamb would win by 6% and get at least 51% of the vote. Regardless of the final outcome, it is safe to say Monmouth’s poll was heavily skewed to the left.

We have new polling for my home state of Maryland from some outfit I have never heard of, Burton Research and Strategies, as reported by Maryland Matters showing Larry Hogan with an overwhelming lead over the top two Democrats.

GOVERNOR – MARYLAND (Burton)
Larry Hogan (R-inc) 54%
Rushern Baker (D) 29%

Larry Hogan (R-inc) 57%
Kevin Kamenetz (D) 26%

This poll was done March 4-11 among likely voters. the article indicates this is a “Republican polling” company, so take that into account.
