This is, for lack of a better word, tragic. Scott Brown is clearly the victim of a blue state rebelling against the extreme right wing, of which Scott Brown is not a part of. We in MA know he had the money, but all I can chalk it up to is that he just ran a horrible ad campaign. A lot of ads here of "Scott Brown from the road" - some corny ads of him driving in his pickup trick, which was cool a couple of years ago and talking to "ordinary folks." He didn't spend enough time in these ads defending his record and it also seems the party left Scott out to dry this time around- maybe as punishment for being an independent type, I don't know.

Not a peep from Kerry. Her reputation amongst Congress is not good and she is deemed incredibly condescending and unlikeable. Just putrid. (For the record, Mitt Romney wasn't a fraud his first two years in office here, he was a legitimately good governor who a lot of the people were behind, until he spent the last two years in office campaigning for president and running away from his record as a right-of-center governor.)

I’m now beginning to think that the Boston Globe poll released on Monday was probably an outlier:

A new poll released today shows Elizabeth Warren leading Senator Scott Brown by 7 percentage points, one of the Democratic challenger’s largest leads in any poll taken in recent months.

The poll, by Suffolk University/News 7, was released a day after a Boston Globe poll showed a much tighter race, with Brown leading by 2 percentage points. The Globe poll showed an exact tie when including responses from voters who did not express an initial preference but said they...
