MPG polls the Boston Mayor's election for WBUR
With just two weeks until election day, a mayoral race breaking down on lines of class and geography has no clear leader, according to a new WBUR/MassINC Polling Group survey.
The poll shows City Councilor-At-Large John Connolly edging state Rep. Marty Walsh 41-39 in Boston’s first open-seat mayoral race in a generation.
Steve Koczela, president of the MassINC Polling Group, said the survey suggests momentum for Walsh, who has trailed by ever-smaller margins in a series of polls in recent weeks.
But the race, he emphasized, is wide open. ”It’s essentially a toss-up,” Koczela said.
