What Do You Think?
Editor's note: Each week, The Herald-Mail invites readers to answer poll questions on its Web site, www.herald-mail.com. Readers also may submit comments about the poll question when voting. Each Sunday, a sampling of edited reader comments will run in The Herald-Mail.
Last week's poll question was: If the election were held today, who would get your vote for U.S. House of Representatives, 6th District - Republican U.S. Rep. Roscoe Bartlett or Democrat Andrew Duck?
As of Friday at 6 p.m., 540 voters (72.8 percent) said they would vote for Duck, while 202 voters (27.2 percent) said they would vote for Bartlett.
I still think Bartlett will have no problem taking this seat this year. Andrew is the better candidate, but MD-06 has gone a while without a viable challenge. I bet a lot of Democrats are sleeping. Maybe Duck can wake them up, but probably not in time for November 7th.
Still, voters are waking up, and 540 Democrats found enough time to go to this website and vote for their candidate in a poll. thats nearly double the amount of Bartlett supporters.
Mark my words, change is coming to Western Maryland.
