    ..."Everybody hates everybody?"  Although they seem to especially hate Republicans, despite recent "conventional wisdom" in some media.

    I'm sort of kidding, but I'm not surprised to see almost every politician's poll numbers dipping.

    •  Voter Intensity in MA (1+ / 0-)

      I believe we'll win, but it's going to be closer than it should be.  Single digit win.


      What we're seeing in Massachusetts

      Because of the heavy interest we'll try to get our Massachusetts numbers out over the weekend. But because we've already conducted most of the interviews for it here are some of the major storylines we're seeing:

      At this point a plurality of those planning to turn out oppose the health care bill. The massive enthusiasm gap we saw in Virginia is playing itself out in Massachusetts as well. Republican voters are fired up and they're going to turn out. Martha Coakley needs to have a coherent message up on the air over the last ten days that her election is critical to health care passing and Ted Kennedy's legacy- right now Democrats in the state are not feeling a sense of urgency.

      •  Unfortunately, As Someone From Mass... (0+ / 0-) anecdotal input is that only in the last few days has a little bit of panic set in with SOME people around here that with a low turnout, and what appears to be more energy from Brown supporters, the unthinkable could happen.

        Coakley hasn't inspired too much enthusiasm I'm afraid, at least from many of the people I know (who were divided between (a) Capuano, (b) Khazei, and (c) don't give fuck at primary time).  And at this point, she's probably not going to get people jumping up and down with a week and a half left and many people completely checked out.  Hopefully the fear will be enough to get people to actually turn out.  It guarantees I'll be voting, anyway.
