New Poll: Tight Race for MD Senate Seat

A poll released today by Goucher College in partnership with the Baltimore Banner, reveals a tight U.S. Senate race scenario involving former Governor Larry Hogan, U.S. Rep. David Trone, and Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks.

Larry Hogan, Angela Alsobrooks, David Trone

The poll surveyed registered voters on their preferences in a general election matchup between the Democratic contenders (Alsobrooks and Trone) and the Republican candidate (Hogan):

  • 44 percent favor Hogan, while 40 percent lean towards Alsobrooks, with 11 percent undecided.
  • 43 percent of respondents would vote for Hogan, compared to 42 percent for Trone, with 10 percent undecided.

The findings suggest that if former Gov. Larry Hogan secures the Republican primary nomination, the race to succeed retiring U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin would be fiercely contested against either Democratic contenders—U.S. Rep. David Trone or Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks.

In terms of the Democratic primary race, 42 percent of Democratic likely voters say they will vote for Trone and 33 percent say they will vote for Alsobrooks. According to the poll, nearly a quarter of Democratic likely voters remain undecided on who they will vote for in the primary.

Maryland’s primary election is May 14.
