Another Poll Affirms Patrick's Lead

Just a day after receiving good news about his surging campaign from a Rasmussen Reports Poll, Democrat candidate for Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick received more good news when the State House News Poll conducted by KRC/Communications Research show Patrick leading the primary election by 13 points and the general contest by eleven points

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.
