Suffolk University Poll Shocker … Brown Out in Massachusetts Senate Race: Republican Brown 4% Point Lead Over Democrat Martha Coakley, 50%-46%!



Has the momentum in the Massachusetts US Senate race for the late Ted Kennedy’s former seat completely overwhelmed the Democrat party and candidate Martha Coakley? Has the pendulum completely shifted in the MA Senate race where Coakley once enjoyed a large double digit lead?

According to a recent Suffolk University Poll shocker, Republican Scott Brown has a 4% point lead over Democrat Martha Coakley. It appears there may be another Tea Party going on in Massachusetts and if Brown pulls off this upset it will be the shot heard round America and the start of a political Revolution.

The poll shows Brown, a state senator from Wrentham, besting Coakley, the state’s attorney general, by 50 percent to 46 percent, the first major survey to show Brown in the lead. Unenrolled long-shot Joseph L. Kennedy, an information technology executive with no relation to the famous family, gets 3 percent of the vote. Only 1 percent of voters were undecided.

From The Cook Report via Michelle MalkinMass Senate Race Changed to Toss Up. How mad a piece of legislation is Obamacare? It has a sure Democrat state like Taxachusetts a toss up to fill the former seat of the late Ted Kennedy. That’s how bad a bill it is!

Check out the breakdown of the polling demographics.  Massachusetts is the most BLUE of BLUE states and a Democrat is trailing a Republican? Not only is this unheard of in today’s politics, it should be sending shock waves to every Democrat Senator and House Representative. What does it mean … No Democrat is safe in 2010!!! It appears that Hot Air is also looking at the cross tabs of those polled and stunned at the results as well.

The poll surveyed a carefully partitioned electorate meant to match voter turnout: 39 percent Democrat, 15 percent Republican and 45 percent unenrolled.

Brown wins among men and is remarkably competitive among women – trailing Coakley’s 50 percent with 45 percent.

While Brown has 91 percent of registered Republicans locked up, an astonishing 17 percent of Democrats report they’re jumping ship for Brown as well – likely a product of Coakley’s laser-focus on hard-core Dems, potentially at the exclusion of other Democrats whom she needed to win over, Paleologos said.

Many thought that 2010 would be a difficult midterm election cycle for Democrats, but no one saw this coming. The race to fill the seat held by the late Ted Kennedy going Republican? Hell, a Republican even being competitive in the Bay State is a story unto itself.

Suffolk University poll: Scott Brown up by 4.

Brown’s favorability ratings are also higher than Coakley’s, with 57 percent saying they have a favorable opinion of the state senator and just 19 percent having an unfavorable opinion. Forty-nine percent say they have a favorable opinion of Coakley, while 41 percent have an unfavorable opinion of the attorney general.

Against the backdrop of an election that could possibly play a decisive role in the health care debate—a point both parties have begun to press on their supporters—51 percent said they did not support the health care bill, with 36 percent supported it. Sixty-one percent said they didn’t believe the government could afford such a plan.

      you can’t even begin to understand the ramifications of a Dem loss in MASS if you did not grow up in New England.

      Even a close race is beyond comprehension.

      Hmmmmmmm….Scott Brown just might take this Seat afterall. Even though Slick Willy is campaigning for Coakley today—Massachusetts is sending a clear message to the Nation.

      Obama will go to MA and provide the kiss of death to Coakley as he did in NJ.

      I have a strong feeling that the Brown supporters will vastly outnumber Coakley supporters at the Obama event. I have never in my life seen this type of overwhelming support for a Republican in Massachusetts. The frenzy of excitement is unbelievable!

      All Brown supporters should use the Obama event as a great counter-rally of their own. Let freedom ring!!!
