In some part of yesterday’s Globe there was a quote from some knucklehead on the Healey campaign that went something like this:
“Well, if Mihos did better than expected, that is good for us because he will take more votes from Patrick then from us. We aren’t going to get any of the anti-incumbent vote anyway.”
There is only one small problem with this logic. If the Healey camp is correct, and Patrick and Mihos are sort of splitting the anti-incumbent vote (if you can call 65/5 splitting) then:
Healey’s camp is admitting that they are stuck at under 30%, since roughly 70% of the voters seem to be committed to one of the ‘anti-incumbent’ candidates, and the Healey camp is planning on getting their support anyway.
So where exactly is Kerry Healey going to pick up the votes that she needs to win?
