A new Poll Shows Brown at 50%, Coakley 46%
She is losing what should have been a sure thing for a Democrat in a deep blue state. As Scott Brown turned out to be a very strong and appealing a candidate, Martha Coakley has turned out to be the opposite, inspiring long time Democrats to vote Republican for the first times in their lives.
What is causing her downfall?
Truly, this past week has been a grievous one for Ms. Coakley in terms of gaffes. I was wondering which one harmed her candidacy the most:
You can vote as often as you like.
A new Pajamas Media/CrossTarget Poll shows Brown up by 15% points.
The no Catholics in emergency rooms gaffe is proving deadly to Coakley, at least in the right-wing blogosphere:
Martha Coakley for Senate
No dirty drunken Irish need apply.
And no theivin’ Guineas, either, now that I’m on the subject.
No filthy fish-eating Papists of any kind.
This woman’s truly got some kind of gift.
