Boston City Election: What’s a conservative or libertarian to do?

This morning’s Herald has a great breakdown of yesterday’s Suffolk University poll. The rich detail from the marginals show that at-large City Councilor John Connolly is ahead by 7 points over state Representative Marty Walsh.

Again, what’s a conservative or libertarian to do in this race? A detailed analysis would suggest that Connolly would reap the few Republican votes in the city based on the councilor’s education and tech tax positions and Walsh’s unearthly ties to organized labor. In a tight race that matters. If Connolly wins, the city GOP should boast that it was kingmaker.  

Meanwhile, it seems that the at large city council is heading super-progressive.

Are we seeing the last days of Steve Murphy?
