BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The latest Goucher College poll finds more than 60 percent of Maryland likely voters say they plan to vote for Joe Biden in the upcoming presidential election.
The poll found 31 percent of likely voters in Maryland say they will vote for President Donald Trump.
Another five percent who say they either don’t know or refused to say which candidate they support.
In addition, President Trump only has a 32 percent approval rating, compared to 67 percent who disapprove.
“Given the political demographics of the state, it’s never been a question of whether the Biden-Harris ticket
would carry Maryland, but rather by how much,” said Mileah Kromer, director of the Sarah T. Hughes Field
Politics Center. “If this gap in voter preferences widens just slightly on Election Day, it would result in the
largest margin of victory in Maryland for a presidential candidate since President Lyndon B. Johnson defeated
Barry Goldwater in 1964.”
The poll also asked about ballot preference.
According to the poll, 51 percent say they will vote in-person either during early voting or on Election Day, while 48 percent say they will vote by mail.
The poll shows more partisan divide over the issue, with more Democrats planning to vote by mail, while more Republicans plan to vote in person.
The poll was conducted from September 30th to October 4th of this year — and surveyed 776 likely voters.
The poll has a margin of sampling error of plus-or-minus 3.5 percent.
