Brown has raised one million a day every day this week.  Not bad.  The Suffolk Poll shows Brown ahead, 50 to 45%.  Pollster David Paleologos said bellweather models show high numbers of independent voters turning out on election day, which benefits Brown, who has 65 percent of that bloc compared to Coakley's 30 percent. Kennedy (the Libertarian) earns just 3 percent of the independent vote, and 1 percent are undecided.

Update: Today's Washington Post has an article about the Poll and Brown's dramatic surge, and confirms the panic that Dems are in.  Also note that if it really turns out to be a close race, the Libertarian (oddly, named Kennedy), with circa 3%, may be the determining factor.

That's "bellwether"--which is a castrated sheep, one easily led about, who in turn is followed by other sheep. Often a good image for democracy.

On the chance that a Republican victory would spell the doom for Obamacare, the Libertarian should drop out of the race. What's wrong with these people? Are they are narrowly ideological as the radical liberals when it comes to political "purity?" It's a big sloppy world, Libertarians, and sometimes you have to settle for a little of what you want.
