David Trone has a slight lead in Maryland’s Democratic Senate primary, polls show

Rep. David Trone Holds Slight Lead in Maryland Democratic Senate Primary Over Prince George’s County Executive Angela AlsobrooksThis is evident from a new poll published on Tuesday.

The poll from Goucher College and The Baltimore Banner found that 42 percent of Democratic voters supported Trone in the primary, while 33 percent said they supported Alsobrooks.

Trone, the founder of Total Wine & More, the nation’s largest independent wine and spirits retailer, officially launched his bid for the Democratic nomination last year to replace retiring Maryland Sen. Ben Cardin. Alsobrooks launched its bid shortly after Trone’s.

The primaries will take place on May 14; Republican Larry Hogan is expected to win handily on the Republican Party side as Trone and Alsobrooks duke it out in the Democratic primaries.

According to the poll, the November race will be close with Hogan, the former governor of Maryland. Forty-four percent of respondents said they supported Hogan, while 40 percent supported Alsobrooks in a hypothetical matchup, while 43 percent said they supported Hogan, compared to 42 percent for Trone.

Hogan unexpectedly entered the race in February and was boosted by widespread name recognition in the state. The former governor was known for his bipartisanship during his two terms and was even beloved by Democrats. He remained popular in the state despite the fact that registered Democrats far outnumbered Republicans.

The survey of 800 Maryland registered voters was conducted via landline and cell phone from March 19 to 24. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points. The poll also asked 408 likely Democratic voters about the primary. Those questions had a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percentage points.
