Merlin on the upcoming Massachusetts Governor race…..

Hello Dog!

I know there is so much talk now about the Massachusetts Senate Special Election….but, I almost led slipped through, that there’ll be another BIG Race in the Bay State. This November Voters will decide if they sent Governor Deval Patrick (D) back to Office for another 4 years.

This Race shaping up be a very interesting one with Republican & Independent Candidates in the running. Here are the Numbers…..

Boston Globe / University of New Hampshire Survey Center

Job Approval Governor Deval Patrick

Approve  41 %
Disapprove  52 %
Undecided  7 %

That’s dismal for a sitting Governor in a very blue State.

Massachusetts Governor 2010

General Election

Inc. Governor Deval Patrick (D)  30 %
State Treasurer Tim Cahill (I)  23 %
State Senator Charlie Baker (R)  19 %
Others  1 %
Undecided  28 %

Inc. Governor Deval Patrick (D)  32 %
State Treasurer Tim Cahill (I)  23 %
Christy Mihos (R)  19 %
Others  1 %
Undecided  26 %

Mark my words. If Coakley loses, or comes close to  losing Patrick is TOAST. Unlike what we saw in the Texas Governor Race  in 2006 ….Independent Candidate Tim Cahill could win this thing here in MA.


Thanks Merlin…but,  ah…I do see that Democrat Governor Patrick leads all the other people running right now…..so he can’t be doing that bad…..right?

  1. BUT Tim Cahill, the States Treasurer is more popular EVEN than Partick.

    Cahill has a very good chance of winning.
