You're welcome for our freedom!

:ann0y:

It would be a huge upset if Brown were to win, from the way things are right now. This is a huge election as he/she will be the deciding vote in the Senate.

A repudiation of Obama's left wing radical agenda.

Not as much as a dis-like for the way Martha Coakley ran her campaign. Brown was actually out there campaigning, while you easily got the sense that she was very content to do the minimum because she counted on winning.

Obama is still popular here. It was Coakley the candidate that lost it.

Obamacare is not. And that is the overriding issue. So I repeat, a repudiation of Obama and his radical agenda.

People in your state know all too well what a failure government run healthcare can be.

Wasn't it Kennedey's bill?

Again, I really don't think this was about Healthcare as much as Brown just ran a great campaign, and Coakley did nothing to draw any independant votes what so ever, and I believe they said on CNN that 51% of the pop. in Mass are independants.

No it wasn't Kennedy's bill, thought he surely supported it.

But that is irrelevant.

The majority of people in Massachussets do not support Obamacare and that was the central issue in this campaign.

This was about Obamacare pure & simple. The people of Mass knew it & would have voted for her even if she ran a bad campaign simply because they knew the importance of the vote.

First Look At Massachusetts Election Night Poll Data
Health Care Top Issue for Massachusetts Voters

Rasmussen Reports has conducted an Election Night survey of 1,000 voters in the Massachusetts special election for U.S. Senate. Data will be released on this page throughout the evening.

Polls closed in Massachusetts at 8:00 p.m. Eastern in the race between Democrat Martha Coakley and Republican Scott Brown.

Health care has been a huge issue in this election. Fifty-two percent (52%) of Brown voters say it was the most important issue in determining their vote. Sixty-three percent (63%) of Coakley voters say health care was the top issue:

· 78% of Brown voters Strongly Oppose the health care legislation before Congress.

· 52% of Coakley supporters Strongly Favor the health care plan. Another 41% Somewhat Favor the legislation.

· 61% of Brown voters say deficit reduction is more important than health care reform.

· 46% of Coakley voters say health care legislation more important than deficit reduction.

· 86% of Coakley voters say it’s better to pass the bill before Congress rather than nothing at all.

· 88% of Brown voters say it’s better to pass nothing at all.

Results include:

•Brown leads among middle-income voters ($40,000 to $100,000).
•Coakley leads among those at upper and lower end of income range.
•Brown leads by 13% among political moderates.
•Among those who decided how they would vote in the past few days, Coakley has a slight edge, 47% to 41%.
•Coakley also has a big advantage among those who made up their mind more than a month ago.
•Seventy-six percent (76%) of voters for Brown said they were voting for him rather than against Coakley.
•Sixty-six percent (66%) of Coakley voters said they were voting for her rather than against Brown.
•22% of Democrats voted for Brown. That is generally consistent with pre-election polling.
More data will be released soon.

Two weeks ago today, Rasmussen Reports released the first poll to show Brown pulling within single digits.

One week ago, Rasmussen Reports showed the race to be a toss-up. Brown was up by two among those most likely to vote.

Are you talking about the seat Brown just won?

I think he holds it until 2012.

See that's what I don't understand. People voted for Obama knowing he wanted to reform health care and create socialism (or did they?) and now that he's in office everyone is up in arms with what he's trying to do....people sway too easily. Do we want socialism or don't we?
I for one do not, therefore I did not vote for Obama, but if America decided they wanted that, why don't they let him do the things he needs to do by telling their senators and congressman to push these bills through? Obama won Massachusetts during the election right? Why the sudden change of heart?
To me, I think this speaks volumes of the number of people that voted for Obama just because he is cool, young and dare I say...black? Yes, being around a college campus, I know a lot of people that just wanted to see the first black president, regardless of what he stands for.

Obama ran as a centrist. He said he was opposed to universal healthcare and the public option. He said that what Hillary wanted to do was not the right direction and then he went and tried to do the same thing. He said taxing those who have cadillac plans like John McCain wanted to do was wrong and now he is trying to do it. He said he would have no lobbyists in the White House but he does. He said he would try a bipartisan approach and he hasn't. He misled America.

President Obama also indicated that he would have full and open debate on health care reform with all sides represented and televised for all to see. I think he has failed so far with that promise.
