Poll: Markey leads Lynch among Democratic primary voters
Huge note of caution: This is the same pollster that had Brown 20 + points ahead of Markey a few weeks ago, just before Brown dropped out. Two days later, PPP had him only a few points ahead, so I would not put too much trust in the numbers.
1. Lynch has a reputation for being anti-choice. That doesn't play well to the greater
constituency in the Commonwealth, even if it may play just fine amongst a donating cadre of his base in his district. As that attitude bubbles out, Lynch is going to lose support, even as others learn more about him.
Markey has a lot of Big Name support, too--for the straight ticket voters, that is all they need to make their pick.
