    From the Boston Globe, Nov. 4 2002:

    A last-minute round of accusations roiled the gubernatorial campaign yesterday when an independent conservative group blitzed Boston radio with an ad that urged supporters of Green Party candidate Jill Stein to vote for Republican Mitt Romney.

    The ad features a man and a woman who praise Stein, but decide to vote for Romney as a practical matter.

    Via email, "Steve" asks:

    David, what advice would you give Jill Stein and the Greens- What do they need to do to breakthrough and win seats on Beacon Hill?

    Easy: re-register as Democrats.

    No, seriously. There's nothing wrong with being a "conscience of the left" third party, and more power to them. And maybe -- maybe -- with a good candidate the party can win the occasional state rep seat.

    "KC" asks:

    Who do you think will win the governor's race? What do you think the final breakdown will be?

    For quite some time, I've been saying that it's about a 55% chance that Deval Patrick will win. I'll stick with that -- I still think it could easily go either way, and frankly the only reason I give the edge to Patrick is that I think it's more likely his team will do the right things in the final two weeks than Baker (who should by all rights be ahead by 15 points).

    The new Suffolk/Ch.7 poll just out shows the Massachusetts governor's race pretty much where it was in May: Deval Patrick leads with 42%, Charlie Baker is behind at 34%, Tim Cahill is well behind but not irrelevant with 14%, and Jill Stein lags at 4%.

    Truthfully, as far as I can tell, not much has changed in this race since summer of 2009, with the lone exception of the big RGA ad blitz in the spring that flipped Baker and Cahill's positions in the polls.
