Brown Leads By 4 Points In Polls? Could “the Kennedy Seat” Go To A, God Forbid, A Republican?

scott_brownThis is shaping up to be real fun.  I want Brown to win in a big way, but even a loss is a slap in the face to the Dems.  This seat was considered carved in stone.  No Republican could ever take it and yet here they are, a hair away from losing it.

Riding a wave of opposition to Democratic health-care reform, GOP upstart Scott Brown is leading in the U.S. Senate race, raising the odds of a historic upset that would reverberate all the way to the White House, a new poll shows.

Although Brown’s 4-point lead over Democrat Martha Coakley is within the Suffolk University/7News survey’s margin of error, the underdog’s position at the top of the results stunned even pollster David Paleologos.

“It’s a Brown-out,” said Paleologos, director of Suffolk’s Political Research Center. “It’s a massive change in the political landscape.”

The poll shows Brown, a state senator from Wrentham, besting Coakley, the state’s attorney general, by 50 percent to 46 percent, the first major survey to show Brown in the lead. Unenrolled long-shot Joseph L. Kennedy, an information technology executive with no relation to the famous family, gets 3 percent of the vote. Only 1 percent of voters were undecided.

BROWN UP BY FOUR
