5% U is pretty low for this race.

Also the I vote dropped considerably from other polls.

Looks too favorable for Republicans. Maybe Ras should pull it and do a new one.

What does? Ras puts out crappy polls showing them losing? I suppose that's true...

Why did Democrats even nominate her after her disgraceful performance against Scott Brown?

Normally this is junk, but its Martha Coakley... which means she's probably down by more.

Martha Coakley has officially defeated Alex Sink and Bruce Braley for the Worst Politician in America award.

She picks lousy years in which to run.


Title: Re: MA: Rasmussen: Coakley trails Baker
Post by: SPC on October 17, 2014, 12:03:18 pm

Technically Ted Kennedy and Deval Patrick chose those years.

If she wanted a Senate seat, 2010 was her best opportunity. She had no way of knowing that Kerry would take up SoS or that a Republican would win a special election and be an incumbent in 2012. She couldn't primary Patrick and her next opportunity for a governorship besides this year would have been 2022.

Rasmussen is not credible. After they pulled that Kansas poll, that was pretty much proof they can't be taken seriously. Coakley will win.

"Coakley" became a verb for 'to lose hilariously' way back in 2010.

How is Coakley the best the Democrats can do with that deep of a bench of successful candidates in Massachusetts? They deserve to lose the unloseable for simply nominating her.

Unfortunately you're probably correct. Coakley will likely lose at this point.

As for the people complaining that someone else would be doing better, they clearly did not pay attention to her opponents in the primary. Judging by the polling taken during the primary, they would likely be doing even worse. I do not consider Grossman or Berwick better candidates electorally speaking than Coakley.

We're going to have a new attorney general this year.

Huge Baker supporter saying Grossman would have probably crushed him.

A lot of Grossman Democrats are hesitating on whether or not to vote for Coakley.

Coakley is the only candidate that could have lost this race, and she's somehow losing it.

Post by: IceSpear on October 20, 2014, 03:37:57 pm
Grossman and Berwick were doing worse in the polls than Coakley. People tend to forget that despite Patrick's somewhat comfortable win in 2010 (he was held under 50%, remember) that the race was expected to be extremely close. MA has no problem electing Republican governors.

I can't. I said that based on what people around here have been saying (many Democrats that voted for Grossman). So feel free to take what I said with a grain of salt.

Wow

Anways, here is an article I saw on Boston's NPR affiliate's website.

http://www.wbur.org/2014/10/14/martha-coakley-democratic-base

Quote
Six weeks of WBUR tracking polls in the race for governor show Coakley struggling to rally the Democratic base to her side. The most recent WBUR poll showed Coakley garnering support from just 62 percent of Democrats (not including leaners). Coakleys standing among registered Democrats has barely moved since the end of August, when she was polling at 63 percent among Democrats in a matchup against Baker.

Quote
Democratic voters have been unusually cool to their partys nominee this year. At this point in the Warren-Brown Senate race, a WBUR poll had Warren up among Democrats, 72 to 21, with just 7 percent of Democrats undecided. A Suffolk University survey in late September 2012 showed Warren capturing 81 percent of the Democratic vote, with 6 percent undecided. Compared to those two data points, Coakleys inability to consolidate the Democratic vote looms large. Her current deficit among independents is in line with the figures Patrick and Warren posted against Baker and Brown. But Coakley cant afford to concede scores of unenrolled voters to Baker if she cant make up the difference with a lopsided victory among Democrats.

People here are such bad losers. And Coakley can definitely still pull it out. It's a god damn Rassy poll for god sakes.
