A new poll from Suffolk University and the Boston Globe shows acting Mayor Kim Janey and City Councilor Michelle Wu pulling away from the rest of field in the Boston mayoral Democratic primary, indicating that the next Boston mayor may be a woman of color. What does this mean for the race with about two months left before the primary election? Jim Braude was joined by pollster David Paleologos to discuss.

“They are winning their core constituencies big, and where they are losing, they’re competitive,” Paleologos said about Wu and Janey’s advantage over Annissa Essaibi George and Andrea Campbell, who are in third and fourth place. “We’ve been conditioned to see these same white men winning — that’s why I think this poll is amazing, this poll finding is a huge finding.”

Paleologos said the poll indicates that housing is the top issue for voters, followed closely by racism/justice and education/schools.
