Wes Moore leads Dan Cox in Md. Gov. race by 2-to-1 margin, Post-UMD poll finds

October 3, 2022

Maryland Democrat and political newcomer Wes Moore holds a 32-percentage-point lead over Donald Trump-aligned Republican Dan Cox in the governor’s race five weeks before Election Day, a Washington Post-University of Maryland poll finds. Moore, a veteran and best-selling author, appears to have consolidated support among the Democrats who make up the majority of the electorate, with the poll finding 86 percent of registered Democrats saying they would vote for him if the election were held today. But 22 percent of registered Republicans also say they would vote for him in November, leaving Cox with a slim path to victory.
