TRACKING: Massachusetts Exit Polls

On January 192010, the state of Massachusettsheld a Special Election to see who would be taking over the senate seat left vacant by the lateTed Kennedy. The contest was regarded as a close one between Republican Scott Brown and Democrat Martha Coakley. As the voting begins,Massachusetts exit polls and Massachusetts election results will begin to become available and will be made available here.

According to the Wall Street Journal, there may not be exit polls released prior to the results of the January 2010 special election as generally in cases where a blowout win is expected, exit polls are not released. Per their report and a January 10, 2010, headline by the Boston Globe, Martha Coakley had a significant lead in the polls at 15 points.5

  1. You forgot to mention that polls late last week showed Brown ahead by 5 points. Not to say that he will win, but you make it sound like a blowout, which it will not be.

  2. Hi folks!
    I have a few relations and friends in Boston. According to their own, yet unscientific independent polls, Coakley is being defeated with possibly a larger margin than the five out of six polls that the Daily Poll ran on Monday, January 18, 2010. It appears that the libs have misguided thoughts that have ultimately derailed and crashed their train on the health care track. Obama and Pelosi directly, and Reid indirectly, have steered the Dems to a point of no return. I am afraid that the voting will now have to contend with 41 Senators on the conservative side and only 59 on the liberal side. This another case where Obama can apologize (once again) to the Democrats and say “The buck stops with me.”
