Ehrlich Sliding Away

Per the new WaPo poll he's down 40-51 to O'Malley with registered voters and losing 39-55 to likely voters.

Expect him to gear up his major league smear campaign any moment now.

Poll Shows Ehrlich Lagging As He Opens Reelection Run
Maryland Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. starts his reelection campaign today significantly trailing Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley, according to a new Washington Post poll. Although the state's voters give the governor good marks for the job he's done, they also appear inclined to return a Democrat to the governor's mansion.

Ehrlich kicks off his campaign today at his boyhood home in the Baltimore suburb of Arbutus, attempting to become the state's first Republican governor in 50 years to serve a second term. But the poll shows why he is preparing to spend a record amount and why he is considered one of the nation's most endangered Republican governors.

This reminds me -- anyone with links to poll numbers, especially for local and legislative races or issues that don't make it into the Post or the Sun, please post them here. We'd love to see them.

And Hi to Oliver! I've been reading him for a while, good to see him here too.

Oliver has a nice set of trolls over there, the comments are often a hoot. OK, maybe they're not all "trolls," but still, sometimes it gets pretty funny.
