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."
