Steele Starts Down

After cruising through the primary season Maryland Lt. Governor and GOP US Senate nominee Michael Steele finds himself down seven in the first General Election poll pitting him against Democratic choice Congressman Ben Cardin.

In a poll released by Rasmussen Reports over the weekend, Lt. Gov. Steele has a favorable rating of 60% and a Reticence Level (lack of support from the Republicans) of only 17% in the survey. The question, unanswered in the poll, is what will be the level of his African American support. We think he will need to receive at least 25-30% of the African American vote to win in November.

The sooner we find an answer to that question the sooner we'll see if the Rasmussen Reports Poll is correct.
