With just one day to go until Massachusetts’ special election to fill John Kerry’s Senate seat, a new poll from Suffolk University shows Democratic Rep. Ed Markey leading Republican Gabriel Gomez by 10 points.

52 percent of respondents said that they would be backing Markey while 42 percent said they’ll be voting for Gomez.

“These numbers suggest that tomorrow night Ed Markey will make the transformation from congressman to senator-elect,” David Paleologos, the Director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center, said in a statement.

The poll was conducted among 500 likely voters in Massachusetts between June 19th through June 22nd.
