New POLITICO poll shows Brown surging to a 9-point advantage over Coakley

A new InsiderAdvantage poll conducted exclusively for POLITICO shows Republican Scott Brown surging to a 9-point advantage over Martha Coakley a day before Massachusetts voters trek to the ballot box to choose a new senator.

According to the survey conducted Sunday evening, Brown leads the Democratic attorney general 52 percent to 43 percent.

"I actually think the bottom is falling out," said InsiderAdvantage CEO Matt Towery, referring to Coakley's fall in the polls over the past 10 days. "I think that this candidate is in freefall. Clearly this race is imploding for her."

I imagine the Democratic Congress and Senate are busy behind closed doors trying to get the bill passed tonight.

Yesterday I felt confident about Brown's chances, today I'm a bit worried. Sounds like the Obot SEIU are in Mass. in droves to get the vote out. I hope Brown has equal help to get the vote out today, it's going to take more than phone calls...he needs help driving people to the polls and most of all, he needs someone staked out at each polling place keeping an eye on cheating.

Keeping my fingers crossed...hope that the Brown supporters get out and vote early.

Yes, Mary Ellen, I also thought something like that could happen! We have experience with that issue, don't we?
