Boston (CNN) - The scene at Martha Coakley headquarters is very quiet ahead of the poll results, CNN National Political Corrspondent Jessica Yellin reports.
"I would have to say most of the people in this room are actually media, so there is not a lot of excitement here," Yellin said. "There is a lot of anxiety, a worried anticipation that this candidate is not going to do what they expected even a month ago when she had a 30 point lead, when Democrats had assumed it was a cakewalk for her, and when the Coakley campaign essentially coasted for many weeks.
"That's the consensus opinion of Democratic operatives in this state, that she just coasted, did not mount the kind of campaign one has to mount to win in a big state and took it for granted. And they are very concerned she is going to pay the price tonight."
Hee, Hee, Hee – read it and weep Democrats. you're really going to cry when you see Palin as the next President of the U.S. You betcha we know where the poll if there ever was one that stated the majority of the people didn't want her. Undoubtedly they only polled in Chicago. You people keep callin' her a quitter. She is no quitter. She quit functioning as a Governor because of all the m.o.n.k.e.y. harassment so she stepped down to fight in court if need be. HURRAY FOR SARAH THE WOMAN FOR AMERICA.
I'll be honest, if Coakley doesn't win, I will not be suprised. She has angered many with the things that she says. Things like how Catholics and other people who believe abortion is wrong should not work in emergency rooms. She never issued an apology or anything for those remarks and so I could see how she may have lost a few supporters. Also, President Obama following her around like a puppy made it painfully obvious that he needed her to push reform through. Not all Americans are that stupid.
No question this is a thorough repudiation of the Neo-Fascistic
system of public-private government spending and economic
growth. The issue of having the role of government in the tradition
outlined by FDR and Ronald Reagan of government serving as
a saftey net for those in need and a strong national defense has
been ratified by the voters of Massachussetts. The Dent Family
landed at Plymouth Rock in 1620 well before the Spaceman pitched
You did not deserve to win Ms. Coakley. You ran a horrible campaign. Who in the name of god thought she could actually win?
Fat Lady not singing but she's humming real loud! Finally change is here.
The citizens of Mass dodged putting another dimb bulb in the Senate.
"when Democrats had assumed it was a cakewalk for her,"
you know what they say happens when you assume something......"you make an A$$ out of u and me"
No one is at the party for Coakly is because she is an idiot and a pawn for Obama... All the real people are at the new "Senator Browns" party!
i wish the winner well. the democratic party may be the big winner, if brown wins. the health care reform is a disaster for the party. this may spare the party and the country disastrous legislation.
i hope the independents and the republicans resist the tendency to gloat. let's just get to work.
Wonderful, its a good day for this country
Uh, uh. I hate to say this America, but I told you so during the last election. Now you are doing a redo. This is not worth all the nail biting. There is no way you should have handed both executive and legislative to people who are in the extreme of their parties. One thing you can be sure of, YOU will get a health care bill no matter what.
That will be a long-term lesson.
She was just a horrible candidate...she looked dead most times. She didn't seem to have any life in her speeches etc. Scott Brown run a better campaign and deserved to win. Congrats Scott Brown.
Got the message? No one at your party but drive by media.....
I offer condolences to the former Atty General. Clearly the stronger candidate won the race for the People's US Senate seat. Ideas matter in politics, responsibility and accountability should matter. If Scott Brown doesn't perform the People's business, I encourage Massachussetts to find someone who will next time out. The important thing now is to hold the newly elected accountable for what they do and what they don't do. I'm absolutely amazed at the inability of democrats to govern the nation. Read the book "Comeback America," written by the former Comptoller of the Currency. Maybe more people will start getting it.
Yes She Lost
