The latest polls now have state senator Scott Brown pulling ahead of attorney general Martha Coakley 50 to 47.
Scott Brown is winning among independents by a large margin 65% to 30%
17% of democrats are supporting Scott Brown.
Brown has also raised at least a million dollars everyday this week. His average donation is under $75.
This pollster was the only one who predicted Hillary Clinton's win in New Hampshire 2008.
Martha Coakley has done much of this to herself. In an interview on Wednesday she said the following
Ken Pittman: Right, if you are a Catholic, and believe what the Pope teaches that any form of birth control is a sin. ah you don’t want to do that.
Martha Coakley: No we have a seperation of church and state Ken, lets be clear.
Ken Pittman: In the emergency room you still have your religious freedom.
Martha Coakley: (……uh, eh…um..) The law says that people are allowed to have that. You can have religious freedom but you probably shouldn’t work in the emergency room.
Nice, so this woman thinks she has the right to tell people of faith where to work. Why in heck did the people of MA vote for this woman in the primary?
Her ever evolving story of her aide and the reporter certainly has not helped matters. But, what I think is the most important factor in this is the sheer arrogance of this woman. She has behaved like the seat belonged to her once the primary was over. If she does indeed lose this race, she may want to rethink that 6 day vacation she took after the primary.
Even the left leaning paper Boston Herald is stunned:
Boston Herald opinion writer Howie Carr believes he’s seeing a trend already in the absentee voting. Carr says, “It becomes increasingly clear, Scott Brown is winning among the people who work for a living, as opposed to Democrats, who are Martha’s voters.
