A new poll by the Delaney campaign shows entrepreneur John Delaney with a nine-point lead over twenty-year Republican incumbent Congressman Roscoe Bartlett in Maryland’s Sixth District. The poll, conducted by Fred Yang of Garin-Hart-Yang Research Group between April 9-11 shows on the first ballot test:

John Delaney 48%
Roscoe Bartlett 39%
Not Sure 13%

 

“John Delaney’s expertise on job creation and focus on the economy is resonating with voters,” said Campaign Manager Justin Schall. “While John believes Congressman Bartlett is a good person, Sixth District voters are tired of politics as usual from Washington and hungry for new leadership and fresh ideas.”

The poll discloses additional significant data:

  • Only 24% of likely voters said that they preferred that Congressman Bartlett be re-elected.
  • 50% answered that they would prefer that a new congressman be elected.
  • Additionally, 47% of respondents said that they preferred the next congressman to be a Democrat, while 40% preferred a Republican.
  • Delaney holds double-digit leads with both types of Independent voters, registered (42%-31%) and self-identified (41%-31%).

The poll’s margin of error was +/- 5%. The poll was conducted among a representative sample of 402 general election voters over three nights.
