Jealous Lags in Latest Poll

A new Goucher Poll released Tuesday has Gov. Larry Hogan leading Democratic challenger Ben Jealous by 22 points, despite high levels of support in Maryland for progressive policies.

According to the poll, 54 percent of likely voters in the state said they will vote for Hogan over Jealous.

However, a majority of those polled also expressed support for a $15 minimum wage, legalized recreational marijuana, and a single-payer health care system ó all of which are policies Jealous promotes.

ďI think it speaks to the fact that Jealous has not been on the airwaves at all this entire summer,Ē said Mileah Kromer, director of the Sarah T. Hughes Field Politics Center, where she oversees the Goucher Poll.

1. I actually think it speaks to the stupidity of the American voter. They support progressive

policies, according to this polll, yet they donít support the candidate that expresses those policies

and while it may have validity that adervertising matters, people who vote should make it their duty to know where candidates stand on the issues, and not have to be spoon fed with a 30 second political ad

9. Obama just endorsed him, finally.

But I was on the MD Democrats Facebook page and there several comments how they would vote for Hogan. Hogan is only not that bad because he has a veto-proof Dem majority. He is very limited.

Still, I sniped at these folks not to call themselves Democrats if they donít vote for Jealous. I hold my nose to vote for Democrats, even if they are not particularly good ones. Now the shoe is in the other foot and they canít do the same? Funny how that works.

I havenít been on this site so I donít know how much discussion there has been of this race. Where does the ďvote D or elseĒ contigent stand?

Iím not sure why Jealous has elicited this response, but maybe itís just that heís a long shot. Or maybe something worse.
