Washington (CNN) – The Massachusetts Senate race between Democrat Martha Coakley and Republican Scott Brown is now a tossup, according to two respected, non-partisan analysts.
The Cook Political Report, published by analyst Charlie Cook, and the Rothenberg Political Report, published by analyst Stuart Rothenberg, both said Thursday that the race between Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley and Massachusetts State Sen. Scott Brown to be a toss-up.
National political trends are playing a major role in the race, according to the Rothenberg Political Report.
"[T]his race has become about change, President Obama and Democratic control of all of the levers of power in Washington, D.C.," it said.
"This race call is one of the toughest we've had in a long time," the Cook Political Report said Thursday: While history suggests a Democratic win by Coakley, "the non-quantitative arguments are quite strong" in Republican Scott Brown's favor.
A non-partisan poll released this past weekend by The Boston Globe indicated that Coakley held a 15-point advantage over Brown, but other surveys, including several partisan polls, have suggested the race is much closer.
Voters go to the polls on January 19 in a special election to replace the late Sen. Ted Kennedy.
That is silly. He is just stating his own perverted beliefs and the press is desperately confirming them without any evidence. I hope she does not just win, but kicks his rear end across the state line.
Coakley is a mere puppet of The PropOganda Machine - and she's going to lose big time!
The people of Massachusetts, and the rest of America, are fed up with Obama, Reid, Pelosi and the rest of the liberal gang in Washington. We don't want Socialism. We want freedom and liberty.
Go Scott go!
If you want this country to continue moving forward, Martha Coakley is your best bet.
If a Senate race in Massachusetts is a dead heat, then the Democrats are in big trouble come November.
more republican propaganda about it being a toss- up .. Coakley will win unless most of the people voted are instantly stupid LOL
WIN COAKLEY :)
Go Brown Go!!! Coakley is the Sarah Palin of the Democrat party after her "there are no terrorists in Afghanistan, they are in Yemen". If you vote for Coakley, you may as well vote for Sarah Palin...
Go Martha, Ted would roll over in his grave if we had some pomme republican bastard take the lead chair for the Democratic State of Massachussets. Paddies everywhere would be crying in the porthers and lorne begora we'd all start becoming wee protestants too.
That in itself is a victory. I notice that like a typical liberal, Coakley carries her own thugs with her to beat up the press should they ask an embarassing question. I think Obama used union thugs during his lying campaign.
Think, before you blow it for everybody!
Awesome. The Dems are going to pay for their arrogance and inefficiency. Can't wait until November when Harry Reid, sitting Majority leader gets trounced.
Not to keen on electing a nude model to the senate, especially one who has stated he will be the 41st vote for the republicans who wish to derail this presidency. Sounds like a threat to the country.
I sincerely hope Brown wins. We need to stop this out of controll spending and the far left agenda that Obama and the democrats are ramming down peoples throats.
Scott Brown is the best candidate and he has an excellent chance to win!!!
