Post Poll Shows O'Malley Over Ehrlich

Play associated audio

By Matt Bush

In Maryland, the race for governor has just seen a big shift.

A Washington Post poll shows Democratic incumbent Martin O'Malley with an 11-percentage point lead over Republican former Governor Bob Ehrlich. The poll's margin of error is 4 percent.

All previous polls had the two in a dead heat, but the Post poll shows O'Malley up 52 to 41 percent, with 7 percent undecided. 4 out of 5 Democrats, who make up a large majority of Maryland voters, support O'Malley in the poll, while Ehrlich is getting little support outside of his own party.

Only 10 percent of Democrats say they'll vote for Ehrlich. When he won the governor's race in 2002, that number was 22 percent.
