It is not often we get polls for political races in Maryland, but today we did get a new poll from the organization YouGov showing that both Barack Obama and Ben Cardin are well ahead in their respective races.
PRESIDENT - MARYLAND (YouGov)
Barack Obama (D-inc) 58%
Mitt Romney (R) 36%
US SENATE - MARYLAND (YouGov)
Ben Cardin (D-inc) 50%
Dan Bongino (R) 30%
The poll doesn't break down the states into specific counties, but assuming Howard County is included with the "Baltimore Suburbs, that portion of the state favors Obama 51%-40% and favors Cardin 48%-32%. Interestingly, even though it seems like his commercials are the only ones I ever see on TV, Independent candidate Rob Sobihani is not included as a choice in this poll.
When I heard yesterday that this poll was coming out, I was hoping they might have some numbers for the ballot questions, but it appears this poll was strictly focused on the races for President and US Senate.
This poll was done September 7-14 among 749 registered voters and has margin of error of +/- 4.2%. Here is a link to the complete data tables for the poll and here is a link to the article at the YouGov website.
