Washington Post: Clinton More Popular Than O'Malley In Maryland

A poll released this weekend shows mixed results for the two-term Democratic governor who is widely believed to be a presidential candidate in 2016.

Hillary Clinton is more popular in Maryland than Gov. Martin O'Malley.

So says a Washington Post poll released over the weekend.

"And while O’Malley is widely touted by pundits as a potential 2016 presidential contender, the poll shows that Hillary Rodham Clinton is wildly more popular in his state," according to a March 2 Post story.

The poll found that the two-term Democrat maintains a 49-percent approval rating–a five point drop compared to a statewide poll released Jan. 23 by Annapolis-based Gonzales Research.

The poll raises questions about the future success of O'Malley's much-rumored 2016 presidential campaign.

The governor is widely considered to be interested in running for president in four years and recently created a federal campaign account called the "O Say Can You See Committee."

O'Malley has roughly a year left in his second and final term as Maryland governor.

And that's why they were under investigation? They mixed customer funds with their operating funds. Then because Corzine is well connected, the investigation slowed. Tell me with a straight face that if there was a firm with republicans controlling it, we would not have been watching a civil trial by now.

I did not know that MF Global was a bank and I haven't noticed anyone being prosecuted for anything. Oh yeah, except for Doug Decinces and Bernie Madoff.

That's the whole bloody point. Thy we're allowed to defraud. As the company was tanking, they moved customer funds (They had a duty to invest) into their operating accounts. How is that not fraud? Just because Corzine was a Democrat? And who said they were a bank.
