WBUR Poll: Tierney Leads Tisei, Many Undecided

A snapshot of the 6th District race.

Congressman John Tierney may have reason to smile this week.

A new poll of likely voters published by WBUR shows the incumbent, Tierney, leading his Republican opponent Richard Tisei.

Asked for candidate preference without "leaning" factored in, Tierney leads Tisei by 7 points -- 39 percent to 32 percent -- with 22 percent undecided. Asked the same question with leaning allowed, Tierney's lead over Tisei grows to 12 points -- 46 percent to 34 percent -- with 11 undecided. This suggests about half the undecideds who are leaning toward Tierney.

It also suggests Tisei still has work to do if he's going to persuade undecided voters to support him.

My husband and I are sitting this one out. Both candidates are pro-abortion and pro-homosexual marriage. Just tired of holding my nose when I go into the voting booth.

OMG. What does this guy have to do to get liberals to stop voting for him, kill and gut Michael Moore on live TV? I'm afraid that would just cause more conservatives TO vote for him. We're not going to be able to get this guy out with a crowbar.
