New Senate Poll Shows Massive Markey Lead

UMass Lowell-Boston Herald poll shows Congressman up 20 points over Gabriel Gomez.

With less than a week to go before the U.S. Senate special election, Democratic nominee Edward Markey has opened up a 20-point lead on Republican nominee Gabriel Gomez, according to a UMass Lowell-Boston Herald poll released Thursday.

Markey, a Democratic congressman from Malden, had 56 percent of support in the poll which included 312 likely voters. Gomez, a Cohasset businessman and former U.S. Navy SEAL, had 36 percent of support among those voters.

According to the Herald, the poll queried a total of 608 registered voters and found Markey to have a 53-32 lead amongst that group.

The Herald article notes Markey has not has a lead this large in any other recent polling, most of which has found his support over Gomez in single-digits.

Markey and Gomez will square off in the special election June 25 to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

More details on the poll are available from the Herald here.

So sad that we are going to get stuck with a proven " do-nothing" US Senator from Massachusetts. All because the ex ice cream truck driver has a "D" next to his name. Wake up people Msassachusetts deserves better than this clown.
