New poll: Mass. governor's race is tight
The two major gubernatorial candidates who emerged victorious from Tuesday's primaries appear to be ln a neck-and-neck battle with more than a month to go until the general election.
According to polling done by WBUR in the days before the primary, 39 percent of those polled said they would support Attorney General Martha Coakley, a Democrat, while 34 percent said they would support Republican Charlie Baker. Twenty percent said they were undecided, according to WBUR.
This past Tuesday, Coakley beat out challengers Steven Grossman -- the state's Treasurer -- and Don Berwick, a former Obama health official.
Baker, meanwhile, trounced his GOP rival, Shrewsbury businessman Mark Fisher.
Three independents will also be vying for the Corner Office in the general election: venture capitalist John McCormick, businessman Evan Falchuck and conservative activist Scott Lively.
The general election is Nov. 4.
