By making this race a referendum on the Democratic national leadership, we on the right can in effect show the disenchantment of the populace in a blue state, and at the same time...kill off the very unpopular "health care reform." By not doing this, the GOP is being monumentally stupid. Buy you can see why they lost control of Congress...they've forgotten just who they are...fiscally responsible...
*"Twenty-one percent (21%) of those likely to vote in the special election have a very favorable opinion of Coakley, while 22% have a Very Unfavorable view. For Brown, the numbers are 25% very favorable and 5% very unfavorable."Perhaps the national GOP is irrelevent. I wouldn't be at all surrprized, after all, they are the reason the GOP lost control of Congress in the first place.
*"Special elections are typically decided by who shows up to vote and it is clear from the data that Brown’s supporters are more enthusiastic. In fact, among those who are absolutely certain they will vote, Brown pulls to within two points of Coakley. That suggests a very low turnout will help the Republican and a higher turnout is better for the Democrat."
*"Brown leads 65% to 21% among voters not affiliated with either of the major parties."
