    last weekend in Rockport. In the last two Senate elections the town has gone Democratic (52-47 for Coakley, 55-45 for Warren). I recall seeing a lot of Scott Brown signs there in January 2010, but they were everywhere. This was the first place I'd seen a large number of Gomez signs and it was slightly disconcerting.

    Almost all of our usual Republican sign people around here don't have one out for Gomez.

        I'd say a slight edge to Gomez, but that's the only place in the state I've seen more Gomez signs. Everywhere else (even South Shore and Central Mass.) it's been Markey by either an inch or a mile. West Roxbury, which was plastered in Brown signs and then in Lynch signs, had a ton of Markey and virtually no Gomez.

          in the central part of the state - outer I495 to the Quabbin.  If there's no enthusiasm for him there, the election could be a rout.

            hiking. Didn't see much of anything. Again, big Brown sign territory last fall. The latest poll had Gomez up something like 51-48 in Central Mass, which isn't going to cut it. I think it was the Globe/UNH poll, was has had issues in past cycles, but this one seemed in line with others recently.
