    Wandering Eye: Goucher takes the pulse of Marylanders, a college becomes a benefit corporation, and more
    Goucher College's pollsters tend to pose interesting questions of Marylanders, and the poll released yesterday was no exception. It shows, among many other things, that 72 percent support making schools start after Labor Day, 75 percent want to make businesses offer an hour of sick leave for every 30 hours of work, 60 percent support allowing doctor-assisted suicide for the terminally ill, 57 percent don't want reduced spending on education and schools, 57 percent approve of Barack Obama's presidential job performance, 45 percent oppose fracking, 51 percent oppose the stormwater management fee (62 percent oppose it when it's labeled a "rain tax"), and 52 percent support legalizing pot. Also, about as many Marylanders think Martin O'Malley should run for president in 2016 (31 percent) as think Ben Carson should (30 percent). Polling on new Gov. Larry Hogan shows that while "many residents are still unsure of how to rate the new governor," according to the poll's director, Mileah Kromer, "overall trust in the state government and views on the direction of the state are more positive than in recent years."
