Abstract: This special topic poll was conducted among residents in Maryland. Respondents were queried on the problems and general quality of life in Maryland and their interest in Maryland state government and political affairs. They were asked to rate the efficiency of the Maryland state government and to comment on whether they trusted the state government to deal with Maryland's problems. Impressions were sought of Maryland political figures William Schaefer, Barbara Mikulski, Paul Sarbanes, Mary Boergers, William Shepard, Melvin Steinberg, Helen Bentley, Ellen Sauerbrey, Parris Glendening, Louis Goldstein, Jack Cooke, William Brock, and American Joe Miedusiewski. The topic of crime in the respondent's neighborhood was addressed with questions about gun violence and whether the respondent carried a weapon for personal protection. Other topics covered include the quality of public schools and the Washington Redskins football team's new stadium. Demographic background variables include political orientation, age, race, income, and education.
