The Bad News Out of Mass. Is Mitigated By The Awesome Polling Out of Connecticut

by Philip Baruth

Look, today’s going to be real rough, no two ways about it. Polling out of MA suggests that if Coakley wins, it’ll be by a hair’s breadth; if Brown wins, it may well be an epic mother of a blowout. And while a Brown-out might not kill any healthcare bill, it will certainly kill any bill that might bend the cost curve substantially. So let’s concentrate on some other polling: Lieberman’s up against the wall in CT, baby. In a head-to-head race, even H1N1 beats Big Joe by 35%, which is very much as it should be. If you haven’t called in to help Coakley, you can get it done here. Fingers crossed.
