EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – This week on Newsmakers, a political roundtable previews the Massachusetts presidential primary. Maurice Cunnigham – a professor of political science at UMass Boston – and Politico Massachusetts reporter Lauren Dezenski join Tim White and Ted Nesi to break down next Tuesday’s primary there. Polls show Republican candidate Donald Trump with a commanding lead in the Bay State, but a much tighter race on the Democratic side between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.
The roundtable also examines the surging popularity of Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker.
