Poll Issues: Still the Independents

Jonathan Martin at the Politico posts the following private poll results:
The survey, conducted by longtime Democratic pollster Mark Mellman, has Democrat Coakley, the state attorney general, leading state Republican Sen. Scott Brown 50 percent to 36 percent.


  1. Statistics is a creative endeavor. So is polling. I'll go with Fred Barnes at The Weekly Standard, on Repub chances anywhere: "The bad news? There is no bad news."
    And how many of you believe a Demo anyway?

  2. This skewed poll may dispirit Independents OR it may make Democrats overconfident and they may find better things to with their Tuesday.

    Does anyone else think the the Kennedy name may draw votes away from the Democrats? I realize Joe is more ideologically aligned with the Republicans.

  3. On the other hand, if what I am hearing and reading is correct, then this will make independents all the more determined to get out there and vote. It also might make some Democrats go out and vote.... for Brown.....
