BROWN 6 POINTS AHEAD OF WARREN IN MA
byÂ JOEL B. POLLAK, Biggovernment.com
Polls in the U.S. Senate race in Massachusetts confirm that incumbent Republican Scott Brown has built a significant lead over Democrat challenger Elizabeth Warren. The liberal Public Policy Polling group shocked the left with aÂ pollÂ showing Brown up by 5 percent last week, and a subsequent poll by Kimball Political ConsultingÂ showedÂ Brown leading by 6 percent, leaving no doubt as to the state of the critical Senate race.
As William Jacobson of the Legal Insurrection blog–which has followed the race closely–notes:
Warren herself seems desperate to lash out on the war on women theme so much so that she is becoming a caricature.
All in all, there is a sense in the air that resembles what took place in early January 2010 when the political world collectively came to the realization that the Democrats had nominated a seriously flawed candidate, and were up against a guy with a unique political talent and ability to connect with the folks.
Make no mistake, Warrenâ€™s bizarre handling of her false claim to Native American ancestry has compounded if not caused the problem, as it revealed a personality defect which is not very becoming…
To put it in plain terms, Democrats selected a class and sex warrior when people are not concerned with those issues.
If Warren’s struggles are a sign of the national mood, Democrats may be making a grave mistake by stacking their convention lineup with “war on women” speakers and emphasizing Occupy-style 99%-vs.-1% themes.
The country is looking for genuine leadership, not grievance politics–and straight talkers over motivational speakers.
