Two straws in the wind:
1. Intrade has flipped since Jan 10th to make Brown the favorite. Martha Coakley’s stock has crashed from 90 to 47.3 in less than a week.
2. The Strata-sphere claims that of the 9% of Massachusetts voters who voted absentee (which ended yesterday) Brown is winning 58-42, or 16%. (I can’t verify his link)
Coakley’s bloopers have not helped her one little bit. It’s not like rooting for the Red Sox is a Republican thing, but calling Schilling a Yankee’s fan must count as one of the worst political bloopers of all time. On such errors, political careers are destroyed.
