Maryland Democratic Candidate For Governor Drops 9 Points In Polls After Obama Visits Rally

I’m sure Obama thought this was such a cinched race that showing his mug there would restore some of his longed-for star power. Nope. Nobody wants him – not even the Progressive Marxists. Either he’s not radical enough and hasn’t given them the satisfaction the Left craves, or he has gone far too far to the Left and anyone left in the Democratic Party that is even vaguely sane avoids him like the plague. Good times and long, long, long past due.

From Western Journalism:

Six out of the last seven governors of Maryland have been Democrats, and it appears the next chief executive of the Old Line State will also have a (D) after his name. But that prospect of an easy, breezy win for Anthony Brown was a lot more apparent before Barack Obama came to town and headlined a campaign rally.

Talk about toxic… talk about the thrill is gone.

In fact, says the Daily Caller, a new poll indicates the Democrat gubernatorial candidate has dropped 9 points — a stunning, precipitous drop — in his race against the GOP’s Larry Hogan since President Obama made a rare campaign stop on his behalf.

Things appear to be tightening in Maryland, where a poll leaked to The Daily Caller shows the gubernatorial race is “extremely close — only 2 points, 46 to 44, separate Democratic Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown and Republican small businessman Larry Hogan.”

One should always be cognizant of outliers — and it’s worth noting that this survey was commissioned by the Maryland Republican Party.

You may recall the rather extraordinary scene last week when Obama campaigned with Brown in an area of the blue state where the strength of the two Democrats should have been rock solid. Yet, when Obama was still speaking — still trying to fire up the crowd and convince them to turn out to vote — people began streaming out of the auditorium.

This bottoming out in Maryland’s polls comes on the heels of scenes from the same rally of his once adoring acolytes, rising and departing from the auditorium in mid-Obama speech. They’re just not that into him anymore. Maybe he should stick to playing golf. Not only are the Dems distancing themselves from typhoid-Obama, they are actively disavowing him. No one wants to admit they voted for whatshisname anymore.
