Democrats in Massachusetts are double checking their calendar to make sure Salon isn’t playing an April Fools Day joke. Sorry guys, this isn’t April Fools Day, but the joke is on you.
Scott Brown a fluke? Not so much. This should keep top tier contenders on the sidelines, and make the Democratic Primary look like a who’s who of moonbats and “also rans”. The Unbeatable Republican
But the DSCC received some bad news this week when a poll it commissioned found that Brown’s popularity is soaring. The survey, which has been seen by at least one D.C. insider and was detailed for Salon, measured Brown’s approval rating at 73 percent — easily surpassing the scores for Barack Obama and the state’s two top Democrats, Gov. Deval Patrick and Sen. John Kerry. It also found him running over the magic 50 percent mark against every potential Democratic challenger, and crushing the strongest perceived Democrats (Reps. Michael Capuano and Ed Markey and former Rep. Marty Meehan) by double-digit margins. The results only grew closer when respondents were primed with negative information about Brown.
