So far, according at least to the newest PPP polling in the race, he's succeeding. He's pulling a 58-32 advantage with independents, and gets 20 percent of Democrats. Brown's primary potential weakness, according to PPP's Tom Jensen, is that "53% of voters would like Democrats to have control of the next Senate, compared to 36% who want the Republicans in charge." Because, of course, the Republicans are batshit insane.
What these Massachusetts voters don't know yet is that Scott Brown is very much one of them. All the proof you need of that is where he gets and gives his campaign money. First, where he gets it. Remember Clayton Williams of too extreme for John McCain fame? The guy who said rape was like the weather: "As long as it's inevitable, you might as well lie back and enjoy it." That's this Clayton Williams, from OpenSecrets:
Rep. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), $10,000 to Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-MT) and $5,000 Rep. Rick Berg (R-ND).
You probably also won't be surprised to find out all of these representatives were cosponsors of the infamous HR 3, the "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act." You know that one, the one that says there's only really one kind of rape, "forcible" rape, and you can't get an abortion unless you can prove that you were the victim of rape-rape, not one of those other kinds of rape that you might have really enjoyed. With the added bonus that the IRS would actually have to audit your abortion to determine whether your abortion was because of rape or incest.
That's where Scott Brown's loyalties lie, and that's who Scott Brown wants with him in the Senate. In a word, his fellow Republicans.
