Cardin Courts Black Vote . . . Oh, Wait Never Mind

Posted by Mike on October 27, 2006

Licking his wounds from a debate the night before, Maryland Democrat Senate candidate Ben Cardin ducked a debate against Republican Mike Steele which was to have been hosted by the NAALCP. This act of cowardice may give Steele the boost he needs to put him over the top.

Polls in Maryland have consistently shown a lack of enthusiasm for Cardin among black voters, a traditional Democrat voting block. Couple that with the fact that the Democrat party hand-picked Cardin over former NAALCP President Kweisi Mfume and it becomes clear that the Democrat is in trouble. To top it off, Cardin is clearly stumbling. Every public poll shows his lead in single digits. One survey even shows the race as a tie. The great thing about these polls is that they were taken before danger reared its ugly head and Cardin turned his tail and fled.

Adding to Cardin’s worries is the fact Steele has that special something that even many Presidents lack. This was made that abundantly clear in 2004 at the Republican Convention. This year, Steele has not disappointed. He has proven himself as a formidable politician. His political ads are some of the best I’ve ever seen. Steele is doing everything right.

As one of the bluest states in the nation, all Maryland Democrats need to do is retain the black vote and victory is theirs. Cardin’s strategy, stand up the NAALCP when you’re opponent is a black man. Way to go Cardin!
