And The Survey Says:

The progressives of Massachusetts channeled Howard Beale with their own version of “I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!” – they didn’t vote.

Paul Lukasiak looked at the numbers at Corrente, comparing the Obama/McCain results to the Coakley/Brown numbers and the reason for the results is obvious: Brown actually received 105% of McCain’s votes, but Coakley only pulled 56% of Obama’s numbers. The key was Democratic turn out, which wasn’t there.

Numerian at the Agonist looked at the numbers from Coakly’s pollster, and they show that normally Democratic-voting independents, favored Brown as the agent of “change”, seeing Obama as maintaining the status quo and in thrall to the banks.

After a year without any visible change, and many people in worse shape, no one believes the White House propaganda. The Democrats control the White House and Congress, but the only people making out are the big banks. The so-called “health care reform” will be a major benefit to insurance companies and Pharma, not people. If they don’t get off their butts after removing their heads, the Democrats are going to lose to a lot Republicans using old Obama “hope and change” posters.
