Sarbanes at 27%? Not buying it
Skewed, to say the least, is the poll in today’s Sun about Michael Sarbanes’ 27% lead. That’s my opinion. I ain’t buying the mainstream hogwash. For me, just like Bundley is finding it virtually impossible to circumvent the process – you know, start out as a Council person – so too has Sarbanes attempted to do the same. Name recognition alone (just look at how Frank Conaway is doing in the same paper’s poll yesterday) does not cut it. Further, the question for me is whether or not Sarbanes gets a free ride because of who his daddy is. This city needs real leadership that at least has the basic experience. Dixon, say what you want, did pay her dues. An old fashioned type of guy, I have always had to work hard to move up. And that means doing your classwork and your homework. NW Baltimore voters won’t, I suggest, go for a free pass. So, skewed is the word for today. BMORENEWS will soon run a similar poll and see what subscribers feel – whether they agree or not with the Sun.
PS – Today at 2 pm, Stephanie Rawlings Blake gets endorsed by the Governor.
The Council president’s race, as we predicted weeks ago, is the race to watch. Not the mayor’s.
