Deval's best friend
... Deval's dismal poll numbers aren't surprising. What's suprising is Cahill's continued lead over Baker. This hints
at part of the problem. Baker's choice of a running mate didn't help matters on his right flank
. But there's something more to Cahill's candidacy beyond name recognition and GOP infighting: He's got support, apparently, from an odd assortment of Independents, old Reagan Democrats, more than a sprinkling of hacks, Tea Party types, and disappointed Deval fans who could never vote GOP, etc. ...
Moving on to the Senate race, Martha seems determined to bore everyone to death
. ... I still find it hard to believe she'll lose. I'm looking at Brown, at best, barely topping 40 percent.Update
