MassInsight/Opinion Dynamics Poll: Cahill is the spoiler, Dem Congress Incumbents on shaky ground

Between July 23, 2010 and July 26, 2010 Opinion Dynamics conducted a poll for MassInsight.  500 adults were polled mostly on economic issues and a subset of 452 registered voters were identified and asked a series of political questions.  

The results of the poll further show that Tim Cahill is playing the part of spoiler in the race for Massachusetts Governor.  In a three way race the poll shows that 25% show support for Charlie Baker, 30% show support for Deval Patrick and 16% show support for Tim Cahill with 29% undecided.  In a two person race between Charlie Baker and Deval Patrick, Baker holds a 5 point lead 42% – 37% with 22% undecided.  

These numbers bolster the notion that Deval Patrick’s only shot of re-election is having Tim Cahill in the race.

Perhaps the most shocking aspect of this poll is that 54% of registered voters in Massachusetts are either somewhat or very likely to vote against their incumbent Democratic Congressman this November.  Republicans have a once in a generation opportunity to restore balance to our congressional delegation.
