A new WBUR poll out Tuesday, just one week before election day, suggests that the contest remains very close and very unsettled.
It finds Republican Charlie Baker ahead of Democrat Martha Coakley by just one point — 43 to 42 percent.
But buried inside the latest numbers are some telling details about the state of the race.
- "Many polls, including WBUR’s most recent survey, show the race for governor is neck-and-neck between Democrat Martha Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker."
- "It’s a fact of life across the country that turnout in midterm elections like this one is typically considerably lower than in presidential years, and Massachusetts is no different."
