Ehrlich Closes on O'Malley in Maryland Governor Race

George Wenschhof

The last reported poll on the race for Governor in Maryland was a month ago when the Washington Post showed Democrat incumbent Governor Martin O'Malley with a 11 point lead over former Republican Governor Robert Ehrlich.

Since then, the two have participated in two televised debates and both campaigns have saturated the airwaves with ads critical of the other; especially in the area of taxation and government spending.

A Maryland polling company Gonzales Research and Marketing Strategies now has it at a 5 point lead for O'Malley; 47% - 42%. 6% are still undecided and 4% of the voters say they will vote for a third party.

This poll was conducted from October 11-16 which was the week the televised debates were held. The margin of error is 3.5%
