Ed Markey holds a 44-34 lead among likely Democratic primary voters, but 21% say they’re undecided and 36% report they might change their minds, according to a new poll from the Western New England University Polling Institute. Margin of error is +/- 6 percentage points; sample size is 270.
On the Republican side, Gabriel Gomez was ahead with 33% followed by Michael Sullivan at 27% and Dan Winslow at just 9%. However, the undecideds were 30%, and those saying they might change mind came in at a whopping 59%. Margin of error was +/` 9 for a quite small sample size of 128.
The story at masslive.com also says that Lynch does better than Markey in a “hypothetical” matchup against a Republican opponent, but I wouldn’t worry too much about that, since Markey “leads by a margin of 15 to 19 percentage points.”
More details are supposed to be released tomorrow morning.
