Yesterday we posted how an Emerson College student polling group found Democratic Congressman Edward Markey leading in the June 25 Special Election over newcomer Republican Gabriel Gomez by a mere 6 points.
To the extent that student group could be discounted, it’s going to be harder to explain-away the similar results by Democratic and Daily Kos pollster PPP:
Ed Markey leads our first general election Massachusetts poll 44-40…full results will be up by noon

Markey has been in Congress for 37 years, yet he’s only pulling mid-40s in support in a heavily Democratic state (Independents are the largest group).
There’s only one way for Markey to win: Destroy Gomez with negative attack ads and hyperventilating fear-mongering from the Massachusetts political class.
