September 12, 2012WBUR - Tierney Leads Tisei, But Electorate Still ‘Soft’
Republicans consider it their best chance of unseating a Democratic congressman in Massachusetts. It’s the 6th Congressional District race between embattled Democratic incumbent Rep. John Tierney and his Republican challenger, former state Sen. Richard Tisei.
A new WBUR poll out this morning shows that Tierney is leading by seven points, a lead that widens when you factor in voters leaning toward Tierney. But the poll also shows potential trouble for Tierney ahead.
Steven Koczela, president of MassINC Polling Group, joined WBUR’s Morning Edition to discuss the results.
