    No one would confuse Deval Patrick with John Kerry, but they do have similarities. Both are lawyers with Ivy League degrees, both are liberals who like life's luxuries, and both could lose their jobs.

    When John Kerry won his senate seat in 1984, the Celtics were winning an NBA title with the original Big Three, and at the State House, Governor Mike Dukakis wasn't even thinking about the White House.

    Since then, Kerry has won three more terms in the Senate, but he hasn't won the hearts of state voters.

    Our exclusive 7News Suffolk University Poll proves it: Just 38% of Bay State voters hope he's re-elected in November, while 51%--more than half--want someone new. Nine per cent don't know yet what they want.

    "These numbers signal vulnerability. In a perfect world, this would be a huge problem for John Kerry. The hook is, is there a candidate on the ballot who can beat him," Professor David Paleologos, Suffolk University, said.

    Governor Deval Patrick doesn't do much better.

    Gov. Patrick says, "...by the end of my second term..."

    Patrick is already talking as if he's won four more years, but our poll found only 39% of state voters believe he deserves re-election...and 41% want to give someone else a chance. Twenty percent are undecided.

    I stay registered as an independent, just so that I can vote in the democratic primary.
    I want two shots at voting against Patrick & Kerry. Both may have a challenges in the
    primary this time around.

    The word on the street is that Free'em All Deval is gone if Obama wins the presidency. Supposedly he's got a cabinet post (or job) lined up ala ambassador Argeo Paul Cellucci. Say hello to governor Tim Murray everyone.

    This is just like the "Congree popular rating" stuff.

    Anytime you have any politician up against "To Be Determined" in a poll, guess who wins?

    Those numbers magically change when the "to be determined" actually stands up before the public to be judged against the incumbent. Even ol' W., who is pulling a 23% favorability rating (LA Times/Bloomberg last week) would get at least 38% against a real live human being in an election.
