Massachusetts voters — not as dumb as you thought:
Coakley is not being helped by her pledge to help pass the Democrat’s national health care bill. Fifty-one percent of likely voters here say no to it while 36% say yes. Sixty-one percent think Washington can’t afford it.
Vicki Kennedy said, “As Ted would say, ‘January 19th is the date, Martha Coakley is the candidate.'”
Another surprise — The Kennedy family’s endorsement may have actually hurt Coakley. With 27% said it makes them less likely to vote for her… 20% more likely.
The pucker factor going into Tuesday night’s results is going to be extreme.
