According to a top Brown campaign adviser, there are "longer lines outside Boston than inside. Not good sign for Coakley. Scott's voters highly motivated."
A Democratic source says get-out-the-vote efforts have been good for Coakley, but adds, "I don't know if the machine gets you 10 points."

Everything I’ve been reading looks like this won’t be close.
did Rush just read a quote from a Kennedy complaining that Coakley had campaign signs out before Ted’s corpse was cold?
This is a battle of the people vs. the machine.
The people win
I believe Scott’s leading, but I ain’t buying this.
I have NEVER seen a campaign willing to essentially say “all is lost” this early in the day. Campaign flacks are Baghdad Bobs right up until the concession speech. Unless you’re trying sew complacency on the other side.
Don’t fall for it, folks. VOTE!
>>The people win<<
From what I’ve heard regarding Brown, this may be a HUGE win for the people of the US, but not much of one for MA. They’ll still be stuck with him, though the rest of us can revel in the Dem Supermajority being destroyed.
Not to mention the blow to O, Nancy, et al.
I dont know about signs, but she announced her candidacy within a couple days of his death. Pissed off the Kennedy family.
That is VERY unlikely. Remember that the RCP poll average is skewed by the utterly absurd PJTV "poll" showing a 15% lead for Brown. And some other internet polls are suspect. It is also odd that Rasmussen refuses to do another poll since his "fial" Jan 12th one showing Coaklet +2. If Brown does win, I think it will be by thousands or perhaps hundreds of votes. With a margin of 500 or less, Coakley will win on a fraudulent recount.
Praying for a nice comfortable victory. Senator Brown, that has a nice ring to it
I find a landslide highly unlikely. I think the two key numbers are % of Democrats who crossover for Brown (must be north of 15%) and % of Independents who go with Brown (must be north of 65%) and even with that, I think it’s only a three point Brown win
And does not make that stupid, “I’ll reach across the aisle, my friends” crap a pillar of his campaign. Damn! I am still pissed I ever heard that!
That would be impossible unless hell froze over in late August of 2009.
Rush says NECN is saying most voters are leaning Coakley in their exit polls.
So what’s your beef with Brown, anyway?
