Pollster: Massachusetts Has ‘Become Losable’ for Democrats

Public Policy Polling, conducting an automated poll on the Massachusetts Senate race, is finding good data for Republican candidate Scott Brown. According to PPP’s Tom Jensen, Democratic candidate Martha Coakley’s sleepy campaign–which is increasingly starting to irritate party strategists who trusted her to lock the race down early–has resulted in an electorate that’s more Republican than usual and more anti-health care reform than the state as a whole. Brown, one of the few Republicans of stature in the state, has a 60 percent favorable rating–a result of his own ads and of being basically ignored by Coakley. Writes Jensen:

This has become a losable race for Democrats- but it could also be easily winnable if Coakley gets her act together for the last week of the campaign. Complacency is the Democrats’ biggest enemy at this point and something that needs to be overcome to avoid a potential disaster.

This office supports Massachusetts State Senator Scott Brown in his run for the United States Senate. Refreshingly, Senator Brown articulates his positions on even the most controversial issues openly and with no double speak. Do you support Brown or Coakley?

Sure, threats may not be the same thing as attempts/successes, but I mentioned two attempts, which you did not attempt to refute. Additionally, I admit you are somewhat correct–white supremacists today are not conservatives in the strict sense of the term. They are reactionaries, a political postion most closely related to conservatism.
