O'Malley Has Significant Lead in Washington Post poll

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP)- A Washington Post poll shows Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley has a significant lead over former Republican Gov. Robert Ehrlich. The poll published Wednesday says 52 percent of those most likely to vote support O'Malley, while 41 percent say they support Ehrlich. The poll found that Ehrlich has the support of almost every Republican voter in the state as well as wide support among independents. But the newspaper reports that Ehrlich is failing to draw the cross-party support that enabled him to win in 2002. The Post polled 1,448 randomly selected adults, including 1,196 adults and 730 voters likely to cast ballots. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points among registered voters and plus or minus 4 percentage points for likely voters. The poll was conducted Sept. 22 to 26. SOURCE: WBOC
