  •  Stat that 20% of Obama voters for Brown is key. (1+ / 0-)

    If Brown wins, the margin of victory will be people who voted for Obama in 2008 voting for Brown in 2010.

    That disaffection is based on Democrats and Obama not delivering on promises to go left (transparency, no lobbyists, regulations on Wall Street banks, health care reform)

      that voters who are upset with Obama for being too far to the right, are going to vote for a guy much farther to the right.

      Does that really make sense?

      •  Brown vote is anger vote against broken promise. (2+ / 0-)

        Obama went DC and voters are pissed.

        Obama broke promises of change and transparency and people who voted for him have only one way to show their anger and that's vote for Brown.

        It is probably BECAUSE Massachusetts is so liberal that Brown will win because so many voted for Obama and feel he went back on promises.
