  •  the really good news for Markey thus far... (0+ / 0-)

    ...is that all polls show him ahead; the only question, as far as their accuracy, is...by how much? This poll shows him ahead by 17; the PPP poll showed him ahead by 4; and someone above mentioned a TV poll showed him ahead by 6, which expands to 8 when including leaners.
    The average of all of those polls gives Markey a current lead of 8.75 percent. That's pretty good for someone who is known mostly in the one Congressional district he's represented and who is still introducing himself to votes statewide.

    The key, it seems to me, is for Markey to continue to stake out his position as someone who represents average, everyday, working citizens. This will help him to solidify his position with Democrats and liberals, but also help him to make inroads with the sizeable number of undecideds.
