Democrat Martha Coakley has seen her edge over Republican Charlie Baker nearly erased in the last several weeks and is now virtually tied with Baker in a potential general-election matchup, according to a new Boston Globe poll.

Coakley leads Baker 39 percent to 36 percent in a hypothetical November contest. The 3-point edge is within the survey’s margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

Four weeks ago, Coakley held a nine-point advantage over Baker. The gap between the two is now the narrowest it has been in the seven weeks since the Globe began polling.

...

The live telephone survey of 605 likely, registered voters was conducted by SocialSphere, Inc. from July 7 to July 8, and from July 13 to July 15. The margin of error, while 4 percentage points for the survey overall, was 5.1 percentage points for a smaller sample of 362 voters likely to cast ballots in the Democratic primary on Sept. 9.

This is probably because Coakley nearly got third in the Democratic Convention. That can't be a good sign for things to come. That said, I don't think Grossman has the skills it takes to beat Coakley.

Grossman trails Coakley by more than 30 points in that same poll, among Dem primary voters.

The Globe has a bad track record and too many undecideds for these well known candidates.

If the democrats know what's good for them, they'll choose Coakley, she's polling far better than grossman in GE matchups.

Polling now does not = Polling later. Grossman might/probably has more potential to grow than Coakley does, especially with this level of undecideds.

It's the state party's own fault for not giving Juliette Kayyem the attention her candidacy deserved.

She might not even be in the top 3 in that category in the last 30 years... John Silber and Shannon O'Brien are up there, and I don't know if Mark Roosevelt ever had a chance but he lost by a landslide.
