I just posted this new blog article looking at the numbers from the MassINC Senate poll released on Friday.
The press release for last week’s MassINC poll of the upcoming special election for Senate touted strong performance by possible candidate Scott Brown versus some Democratic contenders. While Brown’s position may or may not be strong, the name recognition numbers of Democrats Ed Markey and Steve Lynch are still too low to base that conclusion on these particular polling results.
MassINC also indicates that most Democratic voters want a primary, but it seems more likely—based on the MAssINC question wording—that voters do not like the idea that party leaders may be trying to keep candidates other than Markey out of the race.
