That’s what Bernstein is reporting via the other two campaigns:
The two other campaigns each claim that Coakley’s lead over Capuano is now in single digits — right around seven percentage points. That would be down tremendously from the Boston Globe poll from about two weeks ago, which had the lead at 21 points.
He noted this with the caveat that he has not viewed the actual materials.
*Update* Capuano’s folks say 7%, Coakley’s say 21%
Tom Kiley, pollster for Michael Capuano, and Celinda Lake, pollster for Martha Coakley, both confirmed for me today what I reported yesterday. Kiley says his poll, taken Sunday and Monday of this week, has Coakley around 35%, and Capuano 7 points behind, in the high 20s. Lake says her poll, taken Sunday through Tuesday, has Coakley at 41%, and Capuano at 20%. (Both have Pagliuca roughly around 10%-12% and falling slightly; Khazei around 7-10% and rising slightly; and some 15%-20% undecided.)
Nothing new on the third campaign that also had 7%:
As for the third candidate’s internal polling that I mentioned yesterday, I have not gotten any further confirmation yet. A source with that other campaign had told me that their polling — like Capuano’s — also shows Coakley’s support dropping, and her lead over Capuano down to around 7 points.
