First Look At Massachusetts Election Night Poll Data
Rasmussen Report ^ | 1-19-10

Posted on 01/19/2010 5:11:59 PM PST by icwhatudo

Rasmussen Reports has conducted an Election Night survey of 1,000 voters in the Massachusetts special election for U.S. Senate. Data will be released on this page throughout the evening.

Polls closed in Massachusetts at 8:00 p.m. Eastern in the race between Democrat Martha Coakley and Republican Scott Brown.

Preliminary results include:

* Among those who decided how they would vote in the past few days, Coakley has a slight edge, 47% to 41%.

* Coakley also has a big advantage among those who made up their mind more than a month ago.

* Seventy-six percent (76%) of voters for Brown said they were voting for him rather than against Coakley.

* Sixty-six percent (66%) of Coakley voters said they were voting for her rather than against Brown.

* 22% of Democrats voted for Brown. That is generally consistent with pre-election polling.

More data will be released soon.

Huh?
Exactly what is the relevance of such a poll, AFTER polling has already closed, and actual results are coming in fast?
I mean there were very few “undecideds” in the past few days anyways(approx 1% according to Suffolk University), and any change in that would be irrelevant with Scott Brown leading by over 5% in the;polls), so what's the point of this crap?
Meanwhile, Scott Rasmussen refused to do a proper poll yesterday, and he instead comes up with this meaningless poll today?
Has Scott Rasmussen completely gone off the edge in the last few days?.

There are about 500,000 votes uncounted, she would have to get over 60% of the remaining votes to win. Not going to happen.

Looks as if the bluebird of happiness is about to fly up Obamas nose (It’s an easy target with it in the air)

This should make the Bluedogs quake.
Even Evan Bayh is already backpedaling.

Don’t lose faith yet, everyone.
The number of registered Iindependents here is more than the number of Democrats and Republicans combined.

Fox says 4% counted with Brown 53% Coakley 47%.

Don’t lose the faith!

I hope you don't mind, but I took a few liberties with your wonderful little O-bomb graphic to make it more, shall we say, explosive!
