Editorial polls seem out of whack

ElectionsHillary ClintonBoy Scouts of America

The results of The Sun's "What Maryland thinks" polls seem so out of tune with other polls' results. The first one I noticed asked the question if Hillary Clinton had done a good job as secretary of state. The results were overwhelmingly negative.

Secretary Clinton's positive ratings as reported by other polls are very high. More recently, there was a poll regarding the Boy Scouts of America with a majority opposing the lifting of the ban on gay scouts and leaders.

Who are your readers that reply to these polls? Considering how Maryland votes, your poll responders seem out of the mainstream.

      The Carroll County public schools are at a crossroads. Teachers are leaving in record numbers to earn substantially higher salaries in neighboring counties.
