Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown has been the early favorite to represent Democrats in the Maryland gubernatorial primary.

A Washington Post poll says Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown holds a 2-to-1 lead over Attorney General Doug Gansler in Maryland's bitter Democratic gubernatorial primary race.

Statewide, 34 percent of Democratic and Democratic-leaning independent voters support Brown in the primary, while 15 percent back Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler and 8 percent support Del. Heather R. Mizeur. Although most voters say they could change their minds before the June vote.

In the GOP primary, the Post poll says nearly half of voters surveyed are undecided. Larry Hogan has support from 17 percent. David Craig has backing from 13 percent. Charles Lollar has 10 percent, and Ron George has 4 percent.

The survey was conducted Feb. 13 to 16 among 1,002 adults. The error margin is 5.5 percent for the sample of 469 Democratic-leaning voters and 7 percentage points among the 290 Republican-leaning voters.
