    The poll , conducted by Public Policy Polling, was conducted on March 26-27. Out of 496 likely Democratic voters, Markey enjoyed a 17-point lead over Lynch, 49-32 percent...

    Markey also had a considerable favorability lead in the poll over Lynch. Sixty-seven percent of respondents had a positive opinion of Markey, compared to only 18 percent with a negative view of the long-time representative. Lynch has only viewed favorably by 44 percent of respondents, with 30 percent feeling unfavorable.

    The poll, sponsored by the League of Conservation voters, had a 4.4 percent margin of error.

    In January, Markey received an endorsement from the League. In a statement at the time, Scott Nathan, Chairman of the League of Conservation Voters, said, "(Markey) has never stopped fighting for Massachusetts -- promoting new technologies and green jobs, standing up to corporate polluters, and putting the health of our families first. Ed Markey is the leader Massachusetts needs in the U.S. Senate."
