Another Poll Affirms Patrick's Lead
Patrick, the former Assistant United States Attorney General for Civil Rights, has held the lead since late spring in most polls but now seems to be increase his lead. However, the most telling point in this survey and the Rasmussen one released recently show Patrick beating presumptive GOP nominee Lt. Governor Kerry Healey by a larger margin than Patrick's opponents.
The State House poll also shows a 14 point increase in support for Patrick and a 24 point decrease for Massachusetts Attorney General Thomas Reilly who was the favorite when the race began in earnest last fall.
The Democrat primary will be held September 19th.
