CD6 LEAK: Rep. Roscoe Bartlett Poll Results - December 14, 2011

The rightwing Blue Ridge Forum blog today has leaked the results of a December 14th poll commissioned by Rep. Roscoe Bartlett. The 6th Congressional District's GOP incumbent clearly wants the public to believe he is still in the game, given that it appears the editor of the Blue Ridge blog is a former Bartlett staffer.  Their interpretation of the results was posted alongside the poll:
In a state with significant public employment and nearly 130,000 in Federal civilian employment (scroll down to Table 5 here), the poll nonetheless reveals  that jobs are the number one issue in the Sixth District not just for Republicans — but for Independents and Democrats.  (Eye on Washington lists 296,295 Federal employees and retirees, by county, for Maryland Congressional Districts as of November 2010.)
Maryland Juice thinks the conclusion that voters in the region care about jobs is a non-sequitor when considering the chances of Mr. Bartlett vs. his GOP and Democratic competitors. I will likely discuss Maryland partisan trending in the near future. In the meantime, here are the details of the poll itself for readers to consider.

See the summary results from the poll below, which was conducted by Bruce Donisthorpe, an Albequerque-based pollster:
