Patrick has narrow advantage in Mass. Gov's race

(CNN) - A new poll in Massachusetts shows Democratic incumbent Deval Patrick is maintaining a narrow lead in the state's governor's race.

According to the new survey from Suffolk University, Patrick leads Republican businessman Charles Baker by 7 points, 46-39 percent. Independent candidate Tim Cahill, who is believed to be drawing support away from Baker, stands at 9 percent.

The poll, conducted between October 25-27, has a sampling error of plus or minus 4.4 percentage points.

    Deval goes down. The 9% supporting Cahill will vote for Charlie Baker knowing Cahill can't win.

    Dump Deval 2010

  2. TSUNAMI WARNING: Expected loss of Socialist DemocRATS EXTENSIVE

    Duval Patrick has been a complete joke. He will NOT be re-elected. If Baker is that close, count on him winning.

    DEMOCRATS in MA – DON'T believe the polls or the HYPE!! It's propaganda that's trying to make you believe your VOTE does not count – GET OUT AND VOTE and VOTE for Duval!!!

    If it is this CLOSE – so they CLAIM, then that means we're WINNING!!!! Keep MA Blue!!

    This is T'SAH from VA and I approve this message!

    I love the way that the media tries to stick to a narrative. In this case "Dems Doomed". The Dem is up 7 points but it is "close". The polls that show repubs up 7 the titles are "solid lead"

    The Republican-TeaParty will be..........amazed.......... when the DEMOCRATS WIN .......... over the TEApublicans!

    Americans are smart, with only 28% even "approving of the Teas"!

    WHY would anyone with a brain put the Teapublicans back in power after the last 8 years?????????

    It would be nice to see Patrick get beat. Unlikely but it would be better for the people.
