BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A new poll by The Baltimore Sun and the University of Baltimore shows that two mayoral candidates are locked in a virtual tie and surging ahead of other candidates.
State Senator Catherine Pugh is leading the pack and former mayor Sheila Dixon right on her heels.
Pugh has a narrow advantage with 26 percent. That’s a big increase in support for her up 8 points from the last poll in January.
Dixon is close behind her with 24 percent that’s a slight drop since that last poll.
Coming in third well behind Pugh and Dixon is Maryland businessman and political newcomer David Warnock. He’s heavily advertised on television and at 10 percent has doubled his numbers from the last poll.
Clustered together below Warnick are Baltimore City councilman Nick Mosby with 6 percent, former prosecutor Elizabeth Embry with 5 percent and Baltimore City councilman Carl Stokes with 3 percent.
Baltimore Sun political reporter Luke Broadwater tells WJZ many of those polled are dissatisfied with how things are going and Pugh seems to signal change.
A quarter of those polled are still undecided.
