Mass. Senate Race: GOP Leads Dem Among Independents

The Massachusetts Senate race to be held January 19th should be a 35 point blowout, but because Democrats are so wildly unpopular these days, it is only a 9-point race, with Democrat candidate Martha Coakley leading GOP candidate Scott Brown by a 50-41 margin. If it stays this way, this race is yet another data point that the political winds have shifted by at least 10-20 points nationally.

Significantly, Brown leads among independents by 44 points, 65-21.
