Much of Edward Markey’s support may come more from the fact that he is a Democrat than from personal affinity.

Democrat Edward J. Markey holds a solid lead over his Republican rival, Gabriel E. Gomez, as the two enter the final week of the special US Senate campaign, according to a new Boston Globe poll.

Markey, who has driven up concerns about his GOP opponent with a barrage of hard-hitting television ads, leads Gomez 54 percent to 41 percent, with only four percent of the respondents saying they were still undecided about who to support in the June 25 election.

When you include voters who said they haven’t yet made up their minds but are leaning towards a candidate, the race tightens slightly, with 54 percent favoring Markey and 43 percent favoring Gomez.

The poll of 508 likely voters, taken from June 11 to June 14, has a plus or minus 4.3 percentage point margin of error.
