You’re Missing The Point, Mr. Media

In the last couple of weeks, two polls have come out showing Ehrlich in the lead. Critics say that they don’t count because the pollsters are “right wing nut jobs” and therefore not credible. Okay, let’s just say for a minute that Rasmussen was in fact a lachey for the Republican party, you’re still missing the point.
Am I killing you yet with suspense? Probably not, this is, after all, just an op.ed., right?
The point is that Ehrlich should be no where close to O’Malley. He’s the challenger, a one-time loser. O’Malley should be 10-15 points ahead right now, and he’s not. Even if the Dems came out with their own poll showing O’Malley in the lead, I’d say it would be fairly close to a dead heat. And even the lib of the libs couldn’t deny the fact that Ehrlich is gaining momentum while O’Malley is fluttering out.
It must be infuriating actually. Mr. Martin must be freaking out right about now. What could he possibly have done to deserve such a backlash? It could have nothing to do with his tax hikes he’s imposed, the deficits he’s created, or the campaign promises he left at the ballot boxes. Really, he must be scratching his head.
