Poll shows Massachusetts governor's race tightening

A Republican former hospital executive is gaining ground on Democratic rivals in the race to be Massachusetts’ next governor, according to a poll released on Friday. The Boston Globe poll found Republican Charlie Baker trailed the state’s Democratic Attorney General, Martha Coakley, by 5 percentage points in a theoretical general election match-up, closer than previous polls have shown. Baker led in a hypothetical match-up with Coakley’s main rival for the Democratic nomination, state Treasurer Steve Grossman, drawing 32 percent of voters to Grossman’s 26 percent. The results from the poll, which had a margin of error of 4 percentage points, marked a change from a series of other polls in recent months that showed Coakley with a comfortable lead, pollster John Della Volpe said in the Globe.
