Daniel……Massachusetts Governor: Governor Race stabelizes with Patrick leading Baker by 8 Points…..

Hello Dog!

According to a new Statewide Survey in the Bay State the Fortunes of Incumbent Governor Deval Patrick (D-MA) have now improved a little. This Race now seems on Stable Territory right. MA Democrats got very worried in the aftermath of Scott Brown’s (R-MA) Victory in January. IF Patrick manages to win Re-Election he can thanks one MAN: His State Treasurer Tim Cahill (I-MA) who is running as Independent this November.

Analysis:

It seems Patrick has stopped the bleeding for now. The Race seems pretty stable right now.

Daniel……The guys 8% ahead!..Cut him some slack!…..While everyone broke his….He’s still in-line to win re-election……..

Scott Brown is a memory…… fading fast!

Daniel……Massachusetts Governor: With Charlie Baker as Republican Nominee Governor Race is a Toss-Up….

Hello Dog!

A new Statewide Survey in the Bay State shows that if Republicans rally around State Senator Charlie Baker (R-MA) they might have a chance unseating Democratic Incumbent Governor Deval Patrick (D-MA)

State Senator Charlie Baker (R)  28 %

Job Approvals

President Barack Obama (D)

Approve  55 %
Disapprove  44 %

Governor Deval Patrick (D)

Approve  34 %
Disapprove  64 %

Analysis:

Patrick with a HORRIBLE 34 % Job Approval Rating. Baker is surging that’s a fact. Still this Poll seems to be in line with a recent 7News / Suffolk University Poll from Mid February with had a 33-25-23 Split with Baker as GOP Nominee and a 34 (Patrick) 26 (Cahill) 19 (Mihos) Split if Mihos would be the Republican Nominee.

This could get far more worse for Patrick as time goes on.

Daniel G.

The key words here are ‘if’ and ‘could’…..the fact is Patrick is ahead in a state that Obama is currently carrying by 11%……me thinks the people of the state has had enough experimenting with electing Republicans….and Patrick is no Coakley……..even if people aren’t crazy about him.

Ah, even Rasmussen acknowledges a Patrick lead in the poll……

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.

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.

Merlin

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?
