The Massachusetts Senate race is critical when it comes to the Democrats retaining the critical 60 vote margin in the Senate. Lose the Senate seat in Mass and Obama’s agenda goes down the drain for 2010 and maybe permanently, including possibly health reform. So how does the race stack up? Pick your poll as far as the Senate race in Massachusetts is concerned.
A recent Boston Globe polls says Democrat Martha Coakley is leading Republican Scott Brown by 17 points.
Yesterday Rasmussen said its most recent telephone survey has the race at 49% Coakley, 47% Brown with 3% undecided. With the margin of error (3%) that puts the race at a tie.
Public Policy Polling says Brown may be 1 point ahead of Coakley.
Could Republican Brown pull off an upset and destroy the Democrat’s 60 vote margin in the Senate? It’s possible, but not likely. The whole election is coming down to one of turnout. With a low turnout Brown has a slim, but plausable, chance of barely winning. However, if turnout is high or even decent then Brown doesn’t have a chance.
At this point, Brown’s supporters seem more enthusiastic, so the outcome depends upon whether Coakley can rally the Democrats with some help from people like Vicki Kennedy, Ted Kennedy’s widow and Bill Clinton who are now stumping for her.
NOTE TO MY DEMO FRIENDS IN MASS—BE SURE TO VOTE EARLY AND MAKE A FEW CALLS ON COAKLEY’S BEHALF. WE CAN’T AFFORD TO LOSE THE MASS SENATE SEAT. IT ALL COMES DOWN TO TURNOUT, TURNOUT, TURNOUT…..
