A new Suffolk University poll (9/3-5; 500 MA likely Democratic primary voters) confirms what we saw in last week’s released Change Research survey (8/23-25; 808 MA likely Democratic primary voters) that found Sen. Ed Markey badly trailing Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy III (D-Newton) in next year’s Senate Democratic primary, 42-25%.
According to the Suffolk results, Rep. Kennedy opens with a 35-26% lead over Sen. Markey with the other candidates way below the double-digit mark. If Markey and Kennedy were to square-off by themselves, Suffolk projects Mr. Kennedy’s lead would expand to 42-28%, this despite both men having strong favorability index ratios. Mr. Kennedy has not committed to making the race but has said he is considering entering the contest.
