A Scare Into Niki?

WBZ's new poll of the 5th Congressional District shows Niki Tsongas leading Jim Ogonowski 51%-41% -- a surprisingly narrow margin, given her high name-recognition and the paucity of Republicans in the district. The poll has Ogonowski leading among unenrolled (ie, Independent) voters, 46%-39%.

By suggesting a close race, the poll should increase the desire for national Republican and Democrat leaders to pump money into this race. There are only five weeks until election day, and they figure to be action-packed.
