I still think that we’ll lose this, but my oh my, this would be HUGE!
Riding a wave of opposition to Democratic health-care reform, GOP upstart Scott Brown is leading in the U.S. Senate race, raising the odds of a historic upset that would reverberate all the way to the White House, a new poll shows.
Does this mean Brown is gonna win? No way. This is too big for the Dems to lose for them not to rally. But serious, this guy was down by 30 3 months ago. He is surging and surging huge.
Why? Because no one wants this health care to pass. Not even those in Kennedy’s home state:
…it appears Kennedy’s quest for universal health care has fallen out of favor, with 51 percent of voters saying they oppose the “national near-universal health-care package” and 61 percent saying they believe the government cannot afford to pay for it.
Further, this race has massive a massive impact in Washington politics. It is so big that Obama doesn’t know what to do about this race. He can not afford to support a Democrat that loses a major race; see Jersey Govna’. Yet, he desperately needs to support the winner. And right now, he’s stuck. Does he fly to Massachusetts and risk losing or does he stay home and risk winning without him?
Gotta tell ya, this is an interesting time. Who woulda thunk that the Senate seat held by royalty could go Red?
