The Boston Globe also did their Congressional endorsements today.  They endorsed every Democrat in every race.  Odd, I thought contributions to party organizations were limited to $5,000.

I find this poll very encouraging.  Here are a few notes:

  • Cahill Voter 2nd choice:  Baker 46%, Patrick 22%, Stein 13%.  3rd Party candidates traditionally lose much of their support on election day when trailing.
  • Baker does better among those voters who will definitely vote.
  • Baker supporters are more excited about the election.
  • Baker leads big among those very interested in the election and trails among those voters not interested at all.
  • …and of course undecided voters traditionally break 2:1 for the challenger.

These factors demonstrate the overall enthusiasm gap that is working in favor of all Republicans this cycle.
