General Election:

Patrick 28%, Cahill 25%, Mihos 21%.

PPP also polled Massachusetts Secretary of State Bill Gavlin (D) as a potential Democratic nominee for Governor in the November elections!  Is Bill Galvin considering challenging Deval Patrick in the Democratic primary?

There was little difference between his numbers and Deval Patrick’s.  I included his data below the fold.


General Election:

Galvin 26%, Cahill 18%, Baker 26%.

Galvin 26%, Cahill 22%, Mihos 20%.

PPP surveyed 744 likely Massachusetts voters from January 7th to 9th. The margin of

error is +/-3.6%. Other factors, such as refusal to be interviewed and weighting, may

introduce additional error that is more difficult to quantify.
