Check out the recently released poll.
“The poll, conducted by the MassINC Polling Group, finds that 38 percent of likely Democratic primary voters say they would vote for U.S. Rep. Ed Markey, of Malden, while 31 percent say they would vote for U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, of South Boston.”
I travel in a lot of progressive Democratic circles. It is easy to get the impression that 95% of Democrats are for Ed Markey. But there are many Democrats out there who are supporting Steve Lynch. He is a good man with a compelling story to tell. I have heard a few people make negative comments about Congressman Lynch. On an individual basis and more broadly here, I am urging people to be positive in this race. My friend Striker57 has led the way in keeping the tenor upbeat and positive on the Steve Lynch side.
There have been negative characteizations that I think it better not to repeat, but guard against ad hominem comments. It’s fine to make comparisons and discuss issues where there are disagreements. But keep your mind positive and open. Either candidate could be the nominee, and make no mistake about this, we are going to need EVERYONE after the primary.
