There has been a lot of polls come out over the past 48 hours showing the Massachusetts special election for Kennedy’s seat was turning a tide and heading towards a possible defeat for Democrats. Now there is a new poll that may give Democrats some breathing room:
A new Boston Globe poll shows Martha Coakley (D), “buoyed by her durable statewide popularity, enjoys a solid, 15-percentage-point lead” among likely voters over rival Scott Brown (R) in the Massachusetts U.S. Senate race, 50% to 35%.
In fact, Coakley’s lead grows to 17 points — 53% to 36% — when undecideds leaning toward a candidate are included in the tally.
I can’t wait to see the outcome of this race. It will be interesting to see which poll gets it the closest. That will be a big indicator as to who to trust in the cycle this year.
