    Rasmussen. One week ago they had Coakley up on brown by 9 points, now she is up by 2 points...which is statistically a tie.

    I am actually shocked, I didn't expect him to close the gap at all.

    Actually, all the recent polls show a virtual tie among voters who are likely to vote. Even the Boston Globe poll which showed Coakley with a 15 point lead among all those polled showed a tie among voters who said they were very interested in the election. Since special elections usually have an even lower turn out than midterm elections, the intensity of interest is likely to be a key factor in how the election works out, and that means Brown not only is tied with Coakley among those most likely to vote, but since he seems to have the greater momentum, may even be a slight favorite at this time.

    I did enjoy Brown telling the moderator that it wasn't Kennedys seat but the peoples seat. I would love to see Obamas face if Brown wins. Better yet to be a fly on the wall.....:clap2:

    Of course that is still a big IF, but possible.

    MA is usually as fucked-up as CA, but lets hope that they see the bullshit on the wall and vote for sanity for a "change". To Brown's credit he made a race out of it.

    And then on to California where Boxer's lead over Fiorina continues to shrink. Some one in the Republican Party needs to send Obama, Axelrod, et. al., a thank you note.
