With a little more than two weeks to go until Election Day, Gov. Deval Patrick continues to hold a slim lead over Republican challenger Charlie Baker in the Massachusetts governor’s race.

According to the latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey, Patrick leads Baker 47-percent to 42-percent.

Independent Tim Cahill is a very distant third at six-percent. Only two-percent are still undecided.

The survey of 750 likely voters was taken Saturday night, just after President Barack Obama came to Boston to campaign for Patrick.

The poll has a margin of error of +/- 4 percentage points.

Last week, a Suffolk University poll showed Patrick with a seven point lead over Baker.

    I can’t wait till this election is over. even when you dismiss all of the “unapproved of advertising” it is still hard to believe anything that any of the candidates has to say in reference to the other.
