Poll shows Connolly, Walsh leading in race to succeed Menino

Councilor at Large John R. Connolly has a thin early lead in the 12-candidate Boston mayoral race, with state Representative Martin J. Walsh close behind and two other candidates near the top, a new poll indicates.

Twelve percent of the 600 respondents in the Suffolk University-Boston Herald poll said they planned to vote for Connolly, while 11 percent supported Walsh. The poll, released Tuesday night, had a margin of error of plus-or-minus 4 percent.
