Maryland senate: democrats with small lead over Steele


Maryland senate: democrats with small lead over Steele

rasmussenreports.com Sat Aug 19, 7:38 AM ET

In the latest Rasmussen Reports poll of the competitive U.S. Senate contest in Maryland, Republican Lt. Governor Michael Steele slightly trails each Democratic contender. Congressman Ben Cardin (D) leads Steele 47% to 42%. Former NAACP President Kweisi Mfume (D) leads the Republican 46% to 44%. This sets the stage for a closely fought general election no matter which Democrat wins the September 12 primary.

This race is listed as Leans Democrat in our Balance of Power summary. That would change to Toss-up if Mfume wins the primary. The state's Governor's race is also competitive.

Cardin was seen early on as the clear frontrunner in the race. More recently, Mfume is thought to be much more competitive in the Democratic primary. In our general election poll, among Democrats, Mfume now collects a few percentage points more support than Cardin does. Mfume is also favorably viewed by more Democrats. Cardin, though, is still thought to be the better organized and better funded candidate.

Some people believe that Mfume may benefit from the large number of candidates in the primary field. That could create a situation where no candidate receives more than 35% of the vote........

5. Republicans are lying to the poll - takers
They're telling the person with the clipboard what they want to hear, that Republicans will vote for their party's nominee. The reality will be that many will stay home on election day and Steele will go down by double - digits. Most Republicans will never ever vote for a black person even if that black person is the GOP candidate. The Republican party stands for two things: concentrating raw naked power in the hands of a wealthy few and paralyzing fear of non - whites. If you need proof just look at George Allen next door in Virginia. It hasn't been Republicans denouncing him for publicly calling an American of Indian descent a slur that means "monkey boy."

6. Republicans will stay home, they're in a funk
they thought they were getting the real deal with Bush and what have they got. A trashed country, people run to the polls when they are angry at who is in power or they are
happy with the status quo and don't want change. Neither apply here. I have talked to a
great many people and I have not heard one person say I like Steele, I think I will vote for
him.

9. maybe in Alabama I believe you
In Maryland I'm not so sure. I'm very troubled by ALL the races getting so tight all of the sudden. I don't really understand, is it the terror thing?
