It will be really, really funny if Brown wins in MA & McMahon wins in CT.

Dewey beats Truman. I don't think much of electoral predictions.

America is truly a nation divided. Those who give and those who take. Amazing. If the ‘RATS win next week, AMNESTY will become a reality and Americans will be overwhelmed by the takers.

Brown is trying to lose it by praising Lurch.

When I look into the eyes of Warren, I see...a Happy Meal short of a few fries.

I sure hope so. I would hate to see Harry Reid back in charge of the Senate.

How so? I know little about MA. I do know that that fake squaw would make an atrocious senator.

That would break the Dick Morris rule that says an incumbent doesn’t get the undecided vote and Brown is currently under 50% in the polls. Maybe the rule is mitigated since Brown has had a shorter tenure in office?

Of ALL the Senate races- a win on this one would be the MOST
delicious. ...even though Brown is a squish.

Warren is just vile.

This looks right, and remember, Massachusetts probably has above-average voter turnout.

IOW, Zero may carry the state — then again he may not, Romney’s won there too — but if he does, and Fauxahontas still loses, it’ll have serious repercussions in the state Demagogic Party. It will probably get pretty ugly. Pass the popcorn.

Thanks NoobRep.

Yep....hand picked by the Washington Socialist powerbrokers, they've dumped $40 million into the race. One of the worst candidates I have ever seen or heard, Pathological liar and complete communist.

I challenge you to try to listen to her speak for more then 3 minutes without ripping your ears off...

With the polling response rates down to 9% or less, small organized sectors of the population can appear to be 11 times more numerous than they really are.

Gallup may have found one such group ~ GBLT, or the homosexual lobby. They reported recently that it's their estimate that the GBLT are about 3.5% of the total population, or at least that 3.5% of total respondents to their polls are of that political persuasion.

That's probably 11 times their actual representation, but never mind, let's move on to how they get to be 3.5%, and what does that mean for Brown and Warren.

We know that in Massachusetts all those guys are Democrats. So, out of the 100% of the population the pollster suggests his polling numbers represent, there are 49% supporting Brown, 47% supporting Warren, and 3.5% GBLT supporting somebody? How about this, they're supporting Warren and are part of that 47%.

Stripping the overcounted GBLTs out of the results, that'd be Brown with 49%, and Warren with 43.5% ~ and another half percent scattered here and there.

That's a pretty good lead for Brown ~ A LANDSLIDE

There's not enough unaccountable numbers for Warren to pull out a surprise victory ~ total toast city!

We have to hold on to this RINO. Brown is better than the alternative.

There are a lot of conservative towns and cities in Mass outside of Boston...check out the map at the link for results of the 2010 race.....http://www.boston.com/news/special/politics/2010/senate/results.html

I think that is a factor.

It's all my fault, I am the 1st to post here I thought he had a chance and that he was the 60th voteto stop Obamacare, everyone here thought I was nut except the Moderator who changed my title so people got what I was trying to say. 29 days later he was Senator Elect...

Personally he has been a huge dissapointment.

But if he wins he takes my Senate Numbers from 54 - 56 to 55 - 57

...If we get CT that takes it to 56 - 58....
