Is Massachusetts going to turn red in November?

October 24, 2014

 Okay, I admit it, the title of this post was designed specifically in an attempt to draw more traffic to America’s Watchtower because we all know there is no chance of Massachusetts turning red in November.

  However it is getting just a little bit interesting in what was once known as the cradle of liberty for according to this story, in what could turn out to be a replay of the special election in which Scott Brown upset Martha Coakley to win Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat, Charlie Baker may be poised to pull off another upset against Martha Coakley in the race for the governor’s seat.

For the first time in the Boston Globe’s weekly tracking poll, Republican Charlie Baker holds a significant lead over Democrat Martha Coakley in the Massachusetts gubernatorial race, 45 percent to 36 percent.

The poll, first posted Thursday night, is the first showing the race as anything but a near tie in recent weeks. Last week’s Globe poll showed the candidates neck-and-neck, as did a separate tracking survey this week from WBUR-FM, conducted by the MassINC Polling Group.

Baker’s lead in the Globe poll is the result of movement of independents into his column, the Globe reports.

  If this trend holds true and independents move toward Charlie Baker on election day, and if he comes anywhere close to defeating Martha Coakley by 10 points I think it is a safe assumption to make that this will help other Republicans in what might be the bluest state in the nation.

 Massachusetts might not be turning red anytime soon but if this poll is an indication Republicans might just be poised to make some gains in Massachusetts. This is going to be very interesting to watch.
