Jan. 19th General Election

Martha Coakley (D-Medford) 54%

Scott Brown (R-Wrentham) 24%

Undecided 20%

The General Election numbers used 39% D, 15% R, and 46% U’s. Coakley leads Brown by a 77-6% margin among Democrats, while Brown lead 71-16% among Republicans. However, and more disappointingly for Scott Brown, Coakley leads 48-23% among Independents.

Interestingly enough, only 28% of Independents knew enough of Brown to make an opinion of him (19-9%), whereas 68% of Independents knew of Coakley’s blandness to decide if they liked her or not. This means Brown does have a great deal of room to grow with Independents (only 9% right now don’t like him). Yet, Brown is really going to have to work hard to win this thing.
