While US Senator Benjamin L. Cardin is polling safely at 50%, he still has to worry about two different candidates competing for his seat.
Republican Dan Bongino and independent Rob Sobhani are in a dead heat for second, the poll by Gonzales Research & Marketing Strategies found. Cardin was the choice of 50 percent of voters, followed by Bongino with 22 percent and Sobhani with 21 percent. Seven percent are undecided.
Sobhani has invested a sizable amount into TV ads promoting his candidacy.
The poll included 813 registered voters who say they are going to vote in the November election. It was conducted between Sept. 17 and Sept. 23. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points, according to Gonzales.
Rob Sobhani is a Maryland-based author, former professor and business owner and is currently the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Caspian Group Holdings. His campaign website can be found at http://www.sobhaniformaryland.com/
