Daniel……As expected with former Governor Robert “Bob” Ehrlich Jr. (R-MD) in the Maryland Governor Race NOW…. It’s a Toss-Up

Hello Dog Folks!

Former Maryland Governor Robert “Bob” Ehrlich has really shaked up this Race with his Entry. The latest Statewide Survey in Maryland finds Incumbent Democratic Governor Martin O`Malley (D-MD) leading Ehrlich by ONLY 3 Points. Considering the MOE of the Survey it’s a statistical DEAD HEAT.

Analysis:

This Race is all about O`Malley. Do you want more evidence that he’s in DEEP TROUBLE.

Obama at 59 %, Health Care well liked and O’ Malley still has underwelming Support.
He’s TOAST come November.

Daniel G.

Ok…..let me see?…..Obama positive, right?…….Healthcare positive?………O’Mally ahead, right?

Just checking……

Daniel….. Missouri Senate: Race is now consistent; Blunt leading Carnahan by 6 Points…..Update….

Hello Dog!

The Missouri Senate Race seems to have settled down for awhile with most Surveys having Congressman Roy Blunt (R-MO) ahead of Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan (D-MO) by a 4-6 Point margin.

In fact a new Survey just confirms it.

Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan (D)  42 %
Others  3 %

Daniel……Massachusetts Governor: With Charlie Baker as Republican Nominee Governor Race is a Toss-Up….

Hello Dog!

A new Statewide Survey in the Bay State shows that if Republicans rally around State Senator Charlie Baker (R-MA) they might have a chance unseating Democratic Incumbent Governor Deval Patrick (D-MA)

Rasmussen Survey

Massachusetts Governor 2010

See full size image

General Election

Incumbent Governor Deval Patrick (D)  33 %
State Senator Charlie Baker (R)  28 %
State Treasurer Tim Cahill (I)  25 %
Undecided  14 %

Incumbent Governor Deval Patrick (D)  32 %
State Treasurer Tim Cahill (I)  28 %
Businessman Christy Mihos (R)  26 %
Undecided  14 %

Job Approvals

President Barack Obama (D)

Approve  55 %
Disapprove  44 %

Governor Deval Patrick (D)

Approve  34 %
Disapprove  64 %

Analysis:

Patrick with a HORRIBLE 34 % Job Approval Rating. Baker is surging that’s a fact. Still this Poll seems to be in line with a recent 7News / Suffolk University Poll from Mid February with had a 33-25-23 Split with Baker as GOP Nominee and a 34 (Patrick) 26 (Cahill) 19 (Mihos) Split if Mihos would be the Republican Nominee.

This could get far more worse for Patrick as time goes on.

Daniel G.

The key words here are ‘if’ and ‘could’…..the fact is Patrick is ahead in a state that Obama is currently carrying by 11%……me thinks the people of the state has had enough experimenting with electing Republicans….and Patrick is no Coakley……..even if people aren’t crazy about him.

Ah, even Rasmussen acknowledges a Patrick lead in the poll……
