Wonder Who They're Going to Nominate

In a recent Rasmussen poll, Democratic Congressman Ben Cardin leads Lt. Governor Michael Steele by 14 points in the race for the senate seat soon to be vacated by Senator Paul Sarbanes (D). However, Cardin isn't the only Democrat looking for the nomination. Former NAACP president Kweisi Mfume is apparently a hopeful as well. However, when matched against Steele, Mfume loses by one point.

This doesn't look like a close race by any account. If the Lt. Governor can't poll decent numbers against a generic Democratic congressman in February he can't expect to win in November. Steele is an ultraconservative who is obviously out of place in a blue state like Maryland.
