GOP Poll Has Massachusetts Senate Race Between Democrat Ed Markey and Republican Gabriel Gomez a Statistical Tie
As reported at The Weekly Standard, a Republican polling firm has the election for the Massachusetts US Senate race between long time Democrat Congressman Ed Markey and first time candidate Republican Gabriel Gomez a statistical tie. This Senate race is the special election to replace the seat formerly held by John Kerry, who became Secretary of State. Obviously, Republican Gabriel Gomez has a tough row to hoe in the predominately Democrat state of Massachusetts, but he represents a breath of fresh air, rather than just more of the same of stale old politicians who think that politics is a life-long profession.

A Republican polling firm has found that the Massachusetts special election for the U.S. Senate is in a dead heat. Democrat Ed Markey, the longtime congressman, leads Republican and first-time candidate Gabriel Gomez by just a point. According to McLaughlin and Associates, a firm that often works for Republican candidates, 45 percent of likely voters in Massachusetts support Markey, while 44 percent support Gomez and 11 percent remain undecided. The election is on June 25.
Recently, the Cook Political Reports changed the race from leaning Democrat to a toss up. According to RCP, Markey is way ahead. However, the PPP, what so many have come to believe is the Holy Grail of polling only has Markey ahead by 4% and Markey is polling far less than 50%. This race is totally up for grabs and will depend on turn out in an off-off year election, at a time when Barack Obama is in deep trouble with scandals.
