Should Scott Brown Run for Governor?

A UMass Lowell/Boston Herald poll shows he is in a strong position to run in 2014.


Results of a UMass Lowell/Boston Herald poll this week show former Senator Scott Brown is more popular than he was when he lost his re-election bid last fall and is in a strong position to run for Governor in 2014.

The independent, nonpartisan poll surveyed 600 Massachusetts registered voters between Saturday, March 2 and Tuesday, March 5.

With regard to Brown, the poll – which asked voters for their opinions on whether they would vote for Brown if he runs for governor – showed he has considerable bipartisan support, with 32.7 percent saying they are very likely to vote for him and 26 percent somewhat likely.

Results showed that Brown, who garnered support of 92.2 percent of Republicans polled and 36.7 percent of Democrats, had more name recognition than other possible candidates, including Charlie Baker (67.2 percent combined said they had no opinion/never heard of Baker), former Lt. Gov. Kerry Healey (58.4 percent combined no opinion/never heard of) and state Treasurer Steve Grossman (79.5 percent no opinion/never heard of).

How would I know, as I've never done those things? But each to his own fantasy. And that's Mr. Aycaramba to you, you insinuating little Midwestern state.

Indiana you are crass, and wouldn't know the truth if it bit you...

Speaking of twenty years from now--since everybody here seems to have a crystal ball: I see people caring less and less about color. I see Indiana seceding from the Union. I see Avon as selectman (go Avon!). I see Janet and Deval in a lovely fall wedding. I see fewer guns and happier people--LIVING people ... I see Scott Brown and he still looks good, but talks too much and says too little.
