Well, That Was Fast

The first post-primary poll is out, and it looks good for Deval Patrick. Obviously, Patrick gets a bump from winning Tuesday's primary and as such commanding the news cycle while the poll was being taken. Patrick had 59% on Tuesday, ostensibly before he'd won the nomination, 68% on Wednesday and 64% on Thursday. Still, it's very encouraging to see Patrick with a thirty-nine point advantage. It's an excellent start to the general campaign and it's spectacular to see that Patrick has a majority across all income levels, educational levels, region, race and gender. Perhaps most importantly, Patrick holds a 54%-30% edge among Independent voters.

Take all these numbers with a grain of salt, as one should with any single poll. Nonetheless, the numbers are quite encouraging and a little enthusiasm for your candidate never hurt anyone.
