Although a poll indicates that he could trounce Mayor Martin O'Malley in September's Democratic primary, Kweisi Mfume said yesterday that he is not planning to run for mayor. "It's not something I'm considering at the moment," said Mfume, president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. "If I was going to be running for office, I'd be out doing something by now." If he did, the poll by Gonzales/Arscott Research & Communications Inc. indicated that the former U.S. congressman "trounces the incumbent mayor" in a race dominated by issues of drugs, crime and schools.

Arscott -- one of Maryland's pre-eminent paid political consultants and a veteran Howard County Republican activist.Sitting Circuit Judges Donna Hill Staton and Diane O. Leasure won out -- even though they were appointed by Democratic Gov. Parris N. Glendening, against whom Arscott helped wage a strong campaign in the 1994 election.

Winning a four-year term in public office without having to run for election is every politician's fantasy, and one that is likely to soon come true for one Howard County Republican. Although Del. Robert L. Flanagan's selection by Gov.-elect Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. to be Maryland's secretary of transportation was just announced and confirmation by the state Senate is uncertain, local Republicans are jockeying for his seat in the House of Delegates. Three -- Carol Arscott, 47, a pollster, Warren Miller, 38, a management consultant and GOP central committee member, and Brian Harlin, 36, owner of a firm that manufactures Republican campaign signs -- have emerged, and most observers expect more candidates will come forward.

Mayor Martin O'Malley could pose a serious threat to Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend's undeclared candidacy for the Democratic nomination for governor should he decide to run, according to a poll released yesterday. The Baltimore mayor would garner 40 percent of the vote to Townsend's 47 percent in a hypothetical one-on-one primary matchup, the Gonzales/Arscott poll showed. Carol Arscott, a partner in the Annapolis polling firm, said the survey shows Townsend could be vulnerable to the right kind of candidate.

With his legislative machine sputtering, Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. will try to boost his administration by turning to the well-honed political operation that carried him into office. Shortly after the General Assembly session ends this week, Ehrlich will launch a tour of the state, reconnecting with the rural and suburban voters responsible for his historic win last November. It's already evident what his message will be: Even though Democrats in the House of Delegates rejected slots, I held firm against higher taxes.

Warren E. Miller will arrive in Annapolis this week as Howard County's newest House of Delegates member on the eve of crucial votes on whether gambling, new taxes or deep budget cuts should be used to address a looming $1.2 billion shortfall.

Maryland's worsening budget woes have put Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend on the horns of a dilemma. The more credit she claims for playing a role in Gov. Parris N. Glendening's popular programs, the more blame she risks for Maryland's $1.7 billion budget shortfall. But if the Democratic gubernatorial nominee denies responsibility for the state's budget mess, she throws away the eight years of experience in the State House that have been a hallmark of her campaign. "Let me be clear what the truth is. I sat in the budget meetings.

SOMEHOW, political polls seem trivial in the wake of last week's tragedies. But politics, like the rest of life, goes on. In terms of attracting attention, the Gonzales-Arscott poll released last week could not have come out at a worse time. It arrived by e-mail a week ago last night, and within 12 hours its impact was blunted by the terrorist attacks in New York and at the Pentagon. The poll showed Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend leading Republican Rep. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. by a 23-point margin in a still-theoretical 2002 gubernatorial contest.
