Skip to comments.'Bottom has fallen out' of Coakley's polls; Dems prepare to explain defeat, protect Obama

Here in Massachusetts, as well as in Washington, a growing sense of gloom is setting in among Democrats about the fortunes of Democratic Senate candidate Martha Coakley. "I have heard that in the last two days the bottom has fallen out of her poll numbers," says one well-connected Democratic strategist. In her own polling, Coakley is said to be around five points behind Republican Scott Brown. "If she's not six or eight ahead going into the election, all the intensity is on the other side in terms of turnout," the Democrat says. "So right now, she is destined to lose."

If MA can elect a conservative Republican, there is hope for the survival of this nation as our Founding Fathers established her.
God bless Scott Brown and his election and this nation.
And let us learn from our mistakes.
The Dems can’t explain this defeat (if it happpens). There’s simply no way to explain the loss of the liberal lion’s seat in the most liberal state in the Union. None.
I’m not real sure how conservative Brown is but for Mass. John McCain is hard right. In any case this would be a good and extremely valuable win.
Other than public disgust at the stimulus, the force
feeding of the health care package, cap and tax and
climate/change there is no excuse, unless after 54?
years the people just got tired of being taken for
Well, haven’t they been telling us that change is good?
But I will be delighted if such happens!
Until then though I am from Missouri so Mass. will have to "show me" for me to be a true believer!
Hey, WAIT, Barney Frank is going to hold a press conference, and HIS amazing voice of support will turn the colors back to the lady.
The press will repeat Gibb's message, Obama is not running in Mass.
They will repeat this message until you begin to wonder about your sanity.
Obama lie? You can bet on it, it got him elected Pres_ent and he will not abandon his favorite tool.
It all sounds good but I am still having trouble with the concept that The Swimmers seat is going Repub!
I thought it was Kennedy’s stool?
I honestly don’t know too much about him.
But what I know is that he is not running as a RINO. He is locked-and-loaded and aiming for dead-center.
That gives me hope...the good kind, not the marketing strategy that Obammie the Commie used to hypnotize half the voters.
hahahah well it sure smells like it!
The Dems cant explain this defeat (if it happpens). Theres simply no way to explain the loss of the liberal lions seat in the most liberal state in the Union. None.
"I told Kennedy that he should have suppored Hillary and not Obama.
Obama should be getting coffee for us..."
I think it will kill Obama’s health care plans. If a republican can take “Kennedy’s seat” a lot of democrats will want to put as much distance between themselves and Obama as possible.
If Brown loses, it will be ONLY because of the same massive ACORN fraud that brought the Kenyan Usurper to power. It will prove that the system has been compromised beyond repair. Our only option would be to work OUTSIDE the normal ways of doing things.
Gibbs might say that Obama’s not running in MA. but according to Coakley, Bush, Cheney and Rush sure are.
They will blame talk radio and demand the “voices of hate” be silenced.
I seesawing back and forth over this. It would be a crushing defeat if Brown were to lose, and a triumph for the bastard. I'm afraid this might send me into a tailspin.
But, elections are decided as much by those who don't vote, as by those who do. This thing Coakley don't look like much--I mean she don't impress me, so it's hard to imagine her impressing anybody else. Even thugs need motivating, something work for:I don't see them finding it.
I wonder if the people of Tassachusetts are as sick of the G*D* Kennedys as I am?
The polls show a close race - abeit Brown has the slight edge. So, here is what's troubling me: SEIU and ACORN may not have to do anything. If the actual vote is as close as it may seem, all the MA Governor & Sec. of State have to do is delay the certification until all the absentee ballots come in and are counted. This could be a replay of Minnesota. I'm hoping and praying for a decisive win for Brown.
I haven’t been over to DU for a long time, but I decided to check out the discourse of the profane left. If you can stand the profanity it is a sure mood elevator to read the despairing, finger-pointing, wailing posts on the Massachusetts campaign.
Only one poll counts and that is days away.
