surveySteve Schuh has a commanding lead over his opponent, according to polling released today by Anne Arundel Community College’s Center for the Study of Local Issues.

The poll, conducted from October 14-16, found that 40 percent of likely voters support Steve Schuh for County Executive over 26 percent supporting George Johnson. The survey was a random sampling of 411 County residents over the age of 18 with a margin of error of 4.8 percent.

“This poll confirms the results of our internal polling showing strong support for Steve Schuh’s five part plan: Cut the property tax by 3 percent, work with the school system to build smaller neighborhood high schools, improve staffing and pay for public safety, enhance customer service and address failing storm pipes and eroding waterways,” said Schuh Campaign Manager Diane Croghan. “With only 13 days until Election Day, Delegate Schuh will continue to reach out to as many voters as possible.”

Schuh leads in all categories, including “right experience,” “ensures best value for taxes collected,” “has high ethical standards” and “connects with you personally,” according to the poll.

“These results are very encouraging, and I will continue working hard in the final days of this campaign to reach undecided voters,” Delegate Schuh said. “I am humbled by the widespread support from Republicans, Independents and Democrats. The poll indicates that voters are looking for the right person for the job, regardless of party affiliation.”
