Wow. I bet the acorns have chartered half the busses on the east coast to bring in the vote if they are predicting a margin that large...even in the People’s Republik of Mass.
Boston Globe, the New York Slimes of Boston...fishwrap.
Mass is a lost cause. It’s a state of either leftist wacko dems or pretending republicans that make RINO’s look conservative.
Not according to this Democrat Poll.
According to this group it is a tie with Brown slightly ahead.
Republicans have a very real chance at orchestrating a Massachusetts miracle in this months special Senate election to determine Ted Kennedys successor, at least according to a new Democratic poll out tonight.
The shocking poll from Public Policy Polling shows Republican state senator Scott Brown leading Democratic Attorney General Martha Coakley by one point, 48 to 47 percent, which would mean the race is effectively tied.
Among independents, who make up 51 percent of the electorate in the Bay State, Brown leads Coakley 63 percent to 31 percent.
Just 50 percent of voters view Coakley favorably, while 42 percent viewing her unfavorably.
Brown, who began an advertising blitz this month, sports a strong 57 percent favorability rating, with just 25 percent viewing him unfavorably very strong numbers for a Republican in the heavily Democratic state.
On the issue of health care, which Brown has emphasized that he would be the deciding vote against, 47 percent said they opposed the plan in Congress while 41 percent supported it.
A Rasmussen Reports survey from earlier this week had showed Coakley’s lead down to 9 points, and in last nights debate she had questioned the accuracy of those numbers, suggesting her margin of victory would in fact be larger.
The survey of 744 likely voters was conducted January 7-9 and had a margin of error of 3.6 percent.
In his analysis, pollster Tom Jensen noted that Coakley is suffering from a less-than excited Democratic electorate, a dynamic similar to the gubernatorial contests in New Jersey and Virginia that Democrats lost last year .
The Massachusetts Senate race is shaping up as a potential disaster for Democrats, said PPP pollster Dean Debnam.. Martha Coakleys complacent campaign has put Scott Brown in a surprisingly strong position and she will need to step it up in the final week to win a victory once thought inevitable.
It sure must be nice to run for office and have the major media behind you 100%. All you have to be is Democrat and the free help just rolls in.
Today’s media is nothing more nor less than a free advertisement for liberalism.
save for later
More like +/- 15 points! Lib spin machine in full panic mode!
Personally, I think both sides are being played.
However, I did send Brown's campaign some money that I could have easily (and more profitably) spent on myself or put into my gas tank. I reasoned it was akin to a theatre ticket--y'know, live drama and high entertainment. I feel more connected to these events having purchased a ticket to this show.
I sincerely hope that Mr. Brown wins.
This poll was started on JAN 2. Ended on JAN 6. And it may have been true. 10 DAYS AGO.
But Brown has all the momentum now.
This poll is totally irrelevant.
Just The Boston Globe running interference for their hack liberal condidate.
The Boston Globe took a poll of the Martha Coakley staff team and that’s the numbers they came up with.
So the 3 most recent polls, all conducted after New Year’s day, are Coakley +9, Coakley +15, and Brown +1.
“The results indicate that Brown has a steep hill to climb to pull off an upset in the Jan. 19 election.”
This is exactly the mentality needed for Brown to win. If Dems think there is no need to put down the Boston Globe and go to the polls, Brown can pull this off.
