I think this poll was taken at a bad time in terms of getting an accurate read on DPs overall approval. If Im reading the dates correctly, this poll was taken the weekend after the Tornadoes. So the approval numbers here may just reflect peoples good opinion of Patricks handling of the Tornado rather than his overall job performance; a disaster bounce if you will. So I think this one should go on the fast-track for a re-poll in a few weeks.


Its TIM Cahill, of course. And Brown IS vulnerable- but Gov. Patrick is an executive kind of guy who would not be happy in a legislative role: hed be making an extreme personal sacrifice to embrace even the possibility of going to the Senate at this stage in his career.


Interesting. I hope another polling firm does a poll re: Deval patrick vs Scott Brown.This should be a strong case for Dems to retain senate majority. DSCC should be hitting up the phone to Patricks office.

Retaining control of the Senate is absolutely essential for the Democrats and Scott Browns seat seems like an important part of that equation... they should definitely be going after it.

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
