Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,October 31st,2014

.. or , is Charlie Baker doing that well ? …

.. I think that it is a combination of the two …

.. according to the Boston Globe , Baker has opened a 9 – pt lead on Coakely … 9 points , in Massachusetts , of all things …

.. I would have to rate Baker as the favourite to win the race [now] , but it is still the People ‘ s Republic of Massachusetts . Weird Thngs can still happen …

… A Really Dumb Move [#Mass Governor]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,October 22nd,2014

.. even for Massachusetts …

.. I wonder what Gov. Deval Patrick is up to . The Dem nominee , AG Martha Coakley is having a hard enough time as it it . She trails GOP nominee [and businessman] Charlie baker by about 4 to 6 points . Anywhere else , it can be a shock . In the People ‘ s Republic , it is earth – shaking …

.. even the denizens of Massachusetts do not like featherbedding and protecting one ‘ s political supporters . Even if it involves putting them under union protection . The state budget is big enough as it is . Adding more flunkies ?!?! … are you kidding ? …

.. Also , Patrick is preparting pardons . Not what AG Coakley needs at this time in the political season ….

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,October 17th,2014

.. so far , so good .>

.. Charlie Baker , the businessman , is leading atty General Martha Coakley , 45% to 39%. This is in deep – Blue Massachusetts , folks …

.. before , Coakley was up , close to double digits , and now she is behind . She is the known quantity in mass politics , folks . Baker is not . She should win this race going away , and , like 2010 , it looks like she is going to blow another statewide race …

… Martha Coakley is in Trouble [#again] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,October 8th,2014

.. yes , again …

.. this time , she is running for Governor of the state . In Massachusetts …

.. that usually means easy election for a Democrap . Not this time . Not this year . Especially not her …

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post …

.. roughly , Republican candidate (and businessman) Charlie Baker is leading Coakley , 46% to 44% , with 10% undecided … ouch ! …

.. both have solid support of their parties , but Baker has more among the GOP . More than that , he has a 3 to 1 lead among independents ….

.. In the People ‘ s Republic of Taxachusetts , that means a Dem is in big trouble . The Dems outnumber the GOP , to be sure , but not by as much as people think . The legislature #s are like 9to1 or 10to1 , but the actual numbers are , I think , more like 3 to 1 ….

.. A large number of those Dems are conservative Democrats . They will vote GOP , if you give them a reason . The Legislature races usually don’t . Congress or Senate , it depends …. but state-wide , it gets a great deal closer …

.. [update] — Charlie Baker has been endorsed by the Boston Herald … big shock … the big question is who gets endorsed by the Boston Globe ….  you  would think that it would be Coakley , but … Baker has not run statewide before , but she has , and is 2&1 [losing the Senate race in 1010] … she should get it , but he has a chance at it …

..  he has taken the lead in the polls , by about 3  pts [41% to 38%] , so she is really struggling . She was leading by 10 to 12 pts , so , she is in real trouble …
