Is Martha Coakley in “freefall?” That’s what Politico is reporting after seeing the latest InsiderAdvantage poll. Read:
A new InsiderAdvantage poll conducted exclusively for POLITICO shows Republican Scott Brown surging to a nine-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 last ten days. “I think that this candidate is in freefall. Clearly this race is imploding for her.”
Quite a few Democrats have complained that Coakley should have been out there campaigning hard the last couple months. But judging by her endless gaffes the last few weeks, she might have done better had she just stayed home. Or maybe gone to Belgium.
