Republican Senate candidate Gabriel Gomez continues to poll within single digits of his opponent, Democratic congressman Ed Markey, in the special election for Senate in Massachusetts. According to a new poll from PPP, first reported by BuzzFeed, Markey leads Gomez, a political newcomer, by 7 points, 48 percent to 41 percent.

As BuzzFeed points out, Markey may be shoring up the Democratic vote after a divisive Democratic primary:

Markey has gone “from a 68/21 lead with Democratic voters two weeks ago to a 77/12 one now,” the PPP analysis of the poll finds.
