I'd support a Republican Governor for MA over Reilly, just not Romney, since he is a Mormon fundamentalist. Managing the Olympics does not qualify someone for office.

If Romney runs for re-election for Governor of Massachusetts, he wins. 

These polls are meaningless this far out.

Romney's campaigning , debating, and speaking abilities are second to none.

Hopefully, a sane legislature will be elected, and overturn this looney same sex marriage bill.   

OMG Republicans will landslide in Massachusetts!

Well, we can always hope.

Too late now. Even if he decided to go back into the race, he wouln't have a chance against a dead dog, since all the Dems would have to do is to run commercials with some of his latest statements. Do you think one could be elected President of the U.S. after saying (in public and on tape) that he, actually, dislikes America, feels foreign there, and would much rather have been President of France - the country he really loves?

Chances are, GOP death in Mass is going to continue. The only Reps that are likely to win in the near-to-medium future are going to be like NYC's Bloomberg (rich liberal Democrats who don't want to earn their stripes in the local party and use the Republican line because nobody else wants it).  In the state legislature Reps are going to continue struggling to win15% of the seats -  in fact, if they consistently do worse they will be challenged for the second party status. 

Of course, in a single-party state like Mass., the only party is a broad church, including both socially conservative/economically populist blue-collar Catholics and blacks and socially liberal/economically moderate everybody else.

Patrick is a candidate who gets people excited while Reilly is a status quo type machine Democrat. I think Deval Patrick has a good chance to be the next governor of Massachusetts.

you should temper your excitment, scoonie.

while reilly, twice elected to statewide office, lost to a political novice over the weekend, you sould keep two important points in mind:

1.  deval patrick is certianly more popular with the liberal activists (ie the people who actually go to local conventions on a saturday).  reilly's base is with blue collars (ie people who have lives.)

2. reilly had a *horrible* week.  his selection of a running mate proved to be a disaster.

i still think reilly will win the democrat nomination.

by the way, he is a piss poor candidate, but reilly is one of the more decent people involved in politics.

Deval Patrick is basically an unknown whose popularity is gaining the more people get to know him. Reilly has a huge leg up when it comes to name recognition and experience, but Patrick can make up the gap with his charisma and outsider appeal.

patrick is basically a latte liberal.  will the voters of mass trust him with the democrat legislature?

What a frigging retarded comment.

Yes I did. He was paying the IRS on an installment plan and missed a payment or two. He paid all of it back the next year. This won't even be an issue in the race.

No, only simple-minded Republicans like yourself believe such crap.

Democrats are against corporate abuse, not corporations in general. Corporations that work for the benefit of both their employees and their shareholders are a very good thing (see Costco as a good example).
