"Only 36% of Likely Mass. Voters Support Obamacare; Only 48% Approve of Job Obama's Doing"
SNIPPET: "(CNSNews.com) - Only 36 percent of the Massachusetts residents who say they are likely to vote in the special U.S. Senate election that will take place in that state on Tuesday say they support the national health-care plan being pushed by President Barack Obama and only 48 percent say they approve of the job Obama is doing as president.
A 51-percent majority of those likely to vote in Tuesday's special election say they oppose Obama's health-care plan."

So there’s a 15% or so on the fence?
I’m trying to find what other polls are suggesting.
This gives a robustness to the polls that show a Brown lead.

“Massachusetts Senate Poll”
SNIPPET: “Scott Brown leads Martha Coakley 51-46 in our final Massachusetts Senate poll, an advantage that is within the margin of error for the poll.
Over the last week Brown has continued his dominance with independents and increased his ability to win over Obama voters as Coakley’s favorability numbers have declined into negative territory. At the same time Democratic leaning voters have started to take more interest in the election, a trend that if it continues in the final 36 hours of the campaign could put her over the finish line.”

GOP Hopeful Riding Voter Anger in Kennedy Seat Bid
SNIPPET: “In addition to showing a dead heat between Brown and Coakley, a Suffolk University poll last week of 500 likely voters also revealed unhappiness with Massachusetts’ landmark health care law, which has been used in part as the blueprint for the national health care overhaul. Close to two-thirds of those polled said the state cannot afford the health care system.
Coakley has promised to be the key 60th vote that Senate Democrats need to move a final version of a national health care bill to Obama’s desk. Brown vows to be the 41st vote against the measure, and a crucial vote in upholding a Republican filibuster. Half in the Suffolk University poll oppose the bill and 61 percent said the federal government can’t afford it.”
“Martha Coakley & Scott Brown Poll Numbers: Who is Ahead in Massachusetts?”

SNIPPET: “Politico points to the non-partisan Cook Political Report and head honcho Charlie Cook and in a report details that he sees the race leaning towards Brown as well, though seems to hedge his bet slightly.
In his afternoon update on Sunday the analyst notes: “We continue to see this race as very much of a toss-up, with Republican state Sen. Scott Brown holding on to a very narrow, single-digit lead over Democratic state Attorney General Martha Coakley.””
It certainly suggests a solid reason for wanting Brown — to throw a monkey wrench into the Bummercare juggernaut. They ought to know firsthand how it stinks, since they tried it on a state level. It’s ludicrous that it took Coakley’s aiming a machine gun at her feet to permit Brown to get to this point, that’s how hypnotized Massachusetts was with the Democrats.
I don’t see how anyone can be on the fence with the horrifically high-priced Obamagov.
Taxpayers have got to get out and vote and this MA election is a good place to start.
Just being mathematical. 51 minus 36 leaves a group whose intentions are not clear.

SNIPPET: “President Obama had some low points in his first year, but it looks like we ain’t seen nothing yet. Year 2 of his reign of error is shaping up as more of the same, only worse.
I know you were.
I was just checking online to see if I could find a well-rounded view of various polls.
One number is for Obamacare, the other for the Zero’s overall job approval. 2 different poll results.
In the last 15 years, Connecticut has lost 30% of the age 24 to 35 demographic. I believe the Bay State has lost almost as much. New England is aging. That is what is, in part, responsible for the opposition to Obama and Obamacare. They’re concerned about the medicare cuts but also the debt is he putting on their grandkids.
Think the question should be asked. . .how is YOUR life; after four years of Democrat controlled Congress. . .

This campaign and Coakley a ‘headline a minute’; all of them BAD NEWS!
I am praying for a CRUSHING defeat of Coakley that hopefully will speed Brown’s certification and defeat of this health care bill.
Devil’s Advocate: Part of me wants Coakley to win and ObamaCare to pass. In that event, the House will return to the Repubs this year and the Senate is likely to also turn Repub.
So theres a 15% or so on the fence?.......................................Not really, they are just waiting it out in a car trunk, if needed they’ll come out of a voting machine with votes for Coakley.
I think we can handily retake the Senate and the House even with the defeat of health care. People are angry, frustrated at their ‘representatives’ who are not listening to their constituents. I predict a blowout in November.
