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.

Rasmussen is really starting to annoy me.

He totally caved when the rats hurt his little feelers a few weeks ago.

Who cares what he says NOW when we'll know ourselves in a few hours? I guess he doesn't mind looking like a fool.

Exactly. Nobody knows where those totals are from.

Best chance we could have asked for. Just be patient and see what happens.

What we saw in Florida a few years ago was that a few highly populated democratic strongholds withheld reporting until they knew how many votes they needed to manufacture.

All I know is... If Brown doesn’t win by at least 5 points - the rats will scurry up what they need to steal it.

Just like they always do.

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

If that holds, Brown wins easily. Brown probably needed around 10% of the Dem vote to ensure a win.

From Jim Geraghty at National Review:

“Obama Towns Are Flipping To Scott Brown. Early Night, Folks.
In 2008, Ashland, Massachusetts went for Obama over McCain, 5,039 votes to 3,181.

Tonight Brown won Ashland 54 percent to 45 percent - 3,467 for Brown while Coakley carried 2,897.

You can call it, folks.”

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