Longtime Maryland Democratic Senator Barbara Mikulski continues to hold a double-digit lead over the best-known of her 11 Republican challengers.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Maryland Voters finds that Mikulski earns 55% of the vote, while Eric Wargotz, a doctor and county commissioner, gets 39% support. Three percent (3%) like some other candidate, and another three percent (3%) are undecided.
Both parties will pick their Senate nominees in September 14 primaries. Mikulski, a member of the Senate since 1987, faces no serious opposition within her own party.
Maryland remains Solid Democrat in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Senate Balance of Power rankings. Mikulski was reelected with nearly 65% of the vote in 2004, and, given the stateâ€™s strong Democratic leanings, it is highly unlikely that she will be defeated this November.
The statewide survey of 750 Likely Voters in Maryland was conducted on August 17, 2010 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 4 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted byÂ Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. SeeÂ methodology.
Incumbent Democrat Martin Oâ€™Malley and Republican challenger Bob Ehrlich remain essentially tied for the third month in a row in the race for governor of Maryland.
Mikulski edges Wargotz by eight points among voters not affiliated with either of the major parties.
