Tuesday, June 5, 2018 – One of the candidates running to be a governor for Maryland Prince George’s County Executive Mr. Rushern Baker III, has received a huge blow after a Washington Post Poll found him trailing badly behind Mr. Ben Jealous. How did Rushern Baker lose this? From front runner to middle of the pack to third from the last is not an impressive showing. “Part of the problem was cover up of criminal activity by Rushern Baker III in Prince George’s County which is now coming up to light, said Diana James at Langley Park. “Rushern Baker has been a huge disappointment as County Executive.” she added.
In many ways, Prince Georges County still lags far behind the rest of DMV in economic growth and prestige and it’s still largely shabby and unkempt.
”Hogan’s broad support — nearly two-thirds of Democrats approve of his job performance — defies a national political climate… His 71 percent job-approval rating among all Marylanders matches his previous record high, and residents are more optimistic about the state’s direction than in any Washington Post poll over the past quarter-century, the poll finds.
Despite months of campaigning, multiple forums and two televised debates, none of the seven major Democratic contenders except for Ben Jealous have distinguished themselves as the most experienced or electable, the poll finds.
Michael J. Hanmer, associate professor of government and politics at the University of Maryland’s Center for American Politics and Citizenship, conducted the poll with the Post.”
