Minds Are Made Up in Massachusetts; Democrat will Replace Republican Romney: SurveyUSA's latest poll in the Massachusetts Governor's race is significant for the complete absence of volatility, according to data collected from 664 Likely Voters exclusively for WBZ-TV Boston. Democrat Deval Patrick today, 11/2/06, defeats Republican Kerry Healey 55% to 34%, largely unchanged from SurveyUSA's most recent pre-election tracking poll released 10/24/06. There is no movement among males, females; no movement among the young, none among the old; no movement among whites, none among blacks; no movement among moderates, none among Independents; no movement among the rich, none among the poor; minds are made up among urban and suburban voters, from Boston to Pittsfield. Barring the unforeseen in the campaign's final 5 days, a Patrick double-digit victory appears almost certain.

Filtering: 1,000 Massachusetts adults were interviewed 10/30/06 through 11/1/06. Of them, 898 were registered to vote. Of them, 664 were judged to be "likely" voters. Crosstabs reflect Likely Voters.
