BOSTON A new WBUR poll (PDFs topline, crosstabs) of the special Massachusetts U.S. Senate election finds it wide open on both the Democratic and the Republican sides.
U.S. Rep. Ed Markey, of Malden, leads his Democratic rival, U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, of South Boston, by 11 percentage points. On the Republican side, former U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan, of Abington, has the lead over both Norfolk state Rep. Dan Winslow and Cohasset private equity manager Gabriel Gomez.

Markey +19 over Gomez.

A disgraceful, dispicable man. Eclipsed only by Alan Grayson.
Worse than I thought. But it’s no surprise.
Markey had a Red Sox player sign a base ball at a wake. Real class act.
Yeah, low class. Shameful.
These polls will get closer, especially for this particular seat. Here’s the history of Kerry’s seat. He only won by wide margins when he was unopposed or had token opposition.
1954 49% 51%
1960 44% 56%
1966 39% 61%
1972 35% 64%
1978 55% 45%
1984 55% 45%
1990 57% 43%
1996 52% 45%
2002 72% Unopposed/mixed
2008 66% 31%
Last two MA senate elections
2010 47% 52%
2012 54% 46%
I’m going to go Indie and vote for Lynch then switch back to Republican. Any shot I can get to get rid of Markey must be taken.
