Shocking Suffolk Poll has GOP's Scott Brown Leading Massachusetts Senate Race

The Boston Herald is reporting in their Friday edition a shocking poll out by Suffolk University that shows GOP Senate Candidate Scott Brown is leading Democrat Martha Coakley 50%-46% in the Massachusetts Senate Special Election Race to fill the seat left vacant by the death of Sen. Ted Kennedy.

This would be a stunning upset for a Republican to win that seat in the bluest of blue states - Massachusetts. In fact, the reality that Scott Brown is going to even be close to winning bodes very well for Republicans this fall, and is an ill omen for Democrats.

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.

Although Brown’s 4-point lead over Democrat Martha Coakley is within the Suffolk University/7News survey’s margin of error, the underdog’s position at the top of the results stunned even pollster David Paleologos.

“It’s a Brown-out,” said Paleologos, director of Suffolk’s Political Research Center. “It’s a massive change in the political landscape.”

The poll shows Brown, a state senator from Wrentham, besting Coakley, the state’s attorney general, by 50 percent to 46 percent, the first major survey to show Brown in the lead. Unenrolled long-shot Joseph L. Kennedy, an information technology executive with no relation to the famous family, gets 3 percent of the vote. Only 1 percent of voters were undecided. . . . MORE
