Massachusetts Senate Race Has National Interest, Obamacare on the Ballot … 49% to 34% Want Republican Scott Brown to Win


All eyes are on today’s special election for the Massachusetts Senate seat held by the late Ted Kennedy. For obvious reason of the future of Obamacare and the Obama Administration, this Senate election has national interest.

According to the most recent Rasmussen poll, 49% of American voters want Republican Scott Brown to win while only 34% are pulling for “Marcia” Coakley. 17% are undecided and too busy watching reality TV.

What is even more amazing is that according to all polls, Mass voters want Scott Brown to defeat Martha Coakley by an even greater margin than the national poll. Maybe it is because the voters are tired of Coakley’s gaffes, ignorance on the issues and being taken for granted in her assumption that she would win because she is an entitled Democrat.

Like fans cheering for their favorite football teams, voters nationwide are paying attention to the special U.S. Senate race in Massachusetts. Almost half of them are rooting for Republican candidate Scott Brown over his Democratic opponent, Martha Coakley.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 49% of likely voters nationwide want Brown to win, while 34% are cheering on Coakley. Seventeen percent (17%) are undecided.

The national reaction is very similar to what is taking place in the Bay State of Massachusetts as the momentum and enthusiasm appears to be in favor of Brown over Coakley, especially among Independents.This might prove to be the deciding factor as 50% of Mass voters are registered independents and according to all polling data are breaking toward Brown.

Sixty-six percent (66%) of Coakley’s fans expect her to win while 69% of Brown’s fans think he will prevail. Those who want Brown to win are also twice as likely to be following news about the election as those who favor Coakley – 47% to 24%.

While 86% of GOP voters nationwide want Brown to win, only 65% of Democratic voters hope Coakley will capture the Senate seat held for 46 years by the late Edward M. Kennedy. Fifty-five percent (55%) of unaffiliateds also want Brown to win.

      mexicans won’t insure or license their vehicles but will flock to the polls if there’s a chance for a freebie. all identification, auto insurance, and license should be checked as soon as they arrive. the only way democrats will win is by fraud.

      Huge Election! This could turn out bigger than the Red Sox winning the World Series in terms of turning the political tides. If you are in MASS. and read this go Vote Brown now.

      Expected a frantic blast of pro-Coakley rhetoric right through Tuesday night….then as expected a few days of cries of irregularities and recount demands after Brown wins.

      No one told the Minutemen it would be easy 235 years ago when the royals and intruders came to town…No one is saying it will be easy now.

      Still, what a GREAT FEELING to tell the few people holding Coakley signs outside of the polls today that I was voting for Scott Brown!

      “Have a nice day” he told me. You, too!

      LET FREEDOM RING! Will be watching the results this evening…..
