Polls Show Mass. Presidential Primary Between Sanders and Warren; Polls Open at 7 a.m., Tomorrow

Tomorrow, Bay State voters join 13 other states and American Samoa in pledging a third of the delegates a candidate needs to win their party’s nomination for president.

Latest polls show U.S. Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Berne Sanders running neck-and-neck race for delegates in the Massachusetts primary. Super Tuesday is the biggest test yet for Warren of Massachusetts and Sanders of Vermont. A University of Massachusetts Amherst/WCVB poll released Friday shows put Sanders at 25%, Warren at 23%, former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg at 14% and former Vice President Joe Biden at 12%. No other candidate reached double-digit support in the poll. The poll largely echoes one conducted by UMass Lowell a week ago which also showed former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard and businessman Tom Steyer following behind.

On the Republican ballot, Massachusetts voters will likely recognize former Gov. William F. Weld challenging President Donald Trump. Other candidates are Joe Walsh and Roque “Rocky De La Fuente. Ballots for the Green-Rainbow and Libertarian parties are also available.

Unlike last week’s early voting, residents cast ballots at their usual polling places. In Haverhill Methuen, North Andover, Groveland, West Newbury and Merrimac, polls open at 7 a.m. and remain open until 8 p.m. Votes cast during early voting last week will be added to totals for each ward and precinct.
