POLL: MASS. VOTERS MOSTLY UNFAMILIAR WITH BAKER, WARREN CHALLENGERS

By Matt Murphy

STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, JAN. 10, 2018....Beating a popular incumbent like Gov. Charlie Baker will be challenge enough for the eventual Democratic nominee, but for that to happen voters must first know who the candidates are.

Poll results released Wednesday morning by WBUR show that a strong majority of voters remain unfamiliar with the three Democrats running to unseat Baker, whose job approval rating remains sky high as he embarks on the fourth and final year of his first term in office.

While it's been almost a year since those Democrats started campaigning, there is also plenty of time remaining on calendar for candidates to introduce themselves to voters as media coverage of the race and spending by the campaigns will begin to amplify in the weeks and months to come.
