ANNAPOLIS — A new poll has Democratic Gov. Martin O’Malley leading in a rematch with former Republican Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. 49 percent to 38 percent, with 13 percent undecided.

The survey of 833 registered voters in Maryland was conducted Sept. 8-17 by Gonzales Research and Marketing Strategies. It has a margin of error of no more than plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

Mr. O’Malley defeated Mr. Ehrlich in 2006 with 53 percent of the vote, compared with Mr. Ehrlich’s 46 percent. Mr. Ehrlich has not said whether he will run against Mr. O’Malley in the 2010 election.

The poll also found that Mr. O’Malley’s job approval rating is about where it was at the beginning of the year. Statewide, 48 percent of voters approved of the job Mr. O’Malley is doing as governor, while 37 percent disapprove.
