A Bit of Funny With the Sad
So the Washington Post asked the great question. Ehrlich vs. O’Malley in 2010, who would you vote for.
The result was O’Malley winning 57% to 36%.
It’s the same margin pretty much that Obama is expected to carry the State as well (current projections are 57% to 38% there). Tough numbers that are made more interesting by the fact that 22% have no opinion on Ehrlich.
But here’s where the funny comes in. The Washington Post withheld the question from publication in their paper for a future article. It is Question 4 at the raw data link. Apparently nobody at the Washington Post conveyed their hiding of the results to John Wagner who went ahead and published it on his Washington Post Maryland Moment blog today.
The Washington Post is notorious for getting scooped on their own stories, at least this time it was just other writers in their organization scooping them.
The reality is, despite O’Malley’s tax increases, despite his incompetence, despite his lack of anything real, Marylanders are reading to reelect him. If Marylanders want to see jobs coming back to the State, if they want lower taxes, and if they want opportunity to succeed, people need to start working for it now. That big “R” next to Ehrlich’s name hurts now more than ever.
